Until one day, as the Pebbles are exploring the many nooks and crannies of the theatre, they stumble upon something they were never meant to find . . . something that just might save the theatre after all . . .

              From bestselling YA rom-com queen Becky Albertalli, author of Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda (Love, Simon), comes a new novel about daring to step out of the shadows and into the spotlight in love, life and, yes, theatre. Contrary to popular belief, best friends Kate Garfield a...nd Anderson Walker are not codependent. Carpooling to and from theatre rehearsals? Environmentally sound and efficient. Consulting each other on every single life decision? Basic good judgment. Pining for the same guys from afar? Shared crushes are more fun anyway. But when Kate and Andy's latest long-distance crush shows up at their school, everything goes off-script. Matt Olsson is talented and sweet, and Kate likes him. She really likes him. The only problem? So does Anderson. Turns out, communal crushes aren't so fun when real feelings are involved. This one might even bring the curtains down on Kate and Anderson's friendship. Praise for Becky Albertalli: 'The love child of John Green and Rainbow Rowell' Teen Vogue 'Worthy of Fault in Our Stars-level obsession.' Entertainment Weekly 'Heart-fluttering, honest, and hilarious.' Stephanie Perkins, author of Anna and the French Kiss

              Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda meets Bend it Like Beckham in this powerful queer coming-of-age story. Fifteen-year-old Spencer Harris is a proud nerd, an awesome big brother and a Messi in training. He's also transgender. After transitioning at his old school leads to a year of... bullying, Spencer gets a fresh start at Oakley, the most liberal private school in Ohio. At Oakley, Spencer seems to have it all: more accepting classmates, a decent shot at a starting position on the boy's soccer team, great new friends, and maybe even something more than friendship with one of his teammates. The problem is, no one at Oakley knows Spencer is trans - he's passing. So when a discriminatory law forces Spencer's coach to bench him after he discovers the 'F' on Spencer's birth certificate, Spencer has to make a choice: cheer his team on from the sidelines or publicly fight for his right to play, even if it means coming out to everyone - including the guy he's falling for.

              An unputdownable murder mystery from an exciting new voice in YA fiction. We notice when they wear each other's clothes, or tie a new stupid bit of string around their wrist, or trim their hair. We knew that Frankie and Jack were made for each other years before they were finally... allowed to admit it. We know these boys. We can work out their behaviour - most of the time predict their behaviour - because we've spent so long analysing every move they make. And we know enough about Frankie Williams to prove he didn't do it. Harri and her best friends worship Half Light - an internationally famous boy band. When frontman Frankie is arrested on suspicion of murdering his oldest friend Evan, Harri feels like her world's about to fall apart. But quickly she realises that she - and all the other Half Light superfans out there - know and understand much more about these boys than any detective ever could. Now she's rallying a fangirl army to prove Frankie's innocence - and to show the world that you should never underestimate a teenage girl with a passion...
