              *A hilarious new book from the bestselling children's author* Just how scary can a holiday be? Very . . . Twelve-year-old Stan is going on holiday. To Italy. He's not going with his family though, he's going with his best-friend Felix (although if Stan was honestly ranking his fr...iends, Felix would be number five). He's absolutely terrified. Luckily, as well as emergency euros, Stan's mum has given him an emergency list that includes how to survive a shark attack, and what to do if he gets abducted by kidnappers. Stan thinks that a better list would include how to cope with weird toilets, and what to do if he accidentally calls Felix's mum 'mum' in front of everybody. And it soon turns out that Italy is full of strange food, difficult games, jellyfish and mosquitoes called Ian. Can Stan survive all this, as well as very complicated (and also, actually, very strange) grown-ups? One thing's for certain, Stan's not going to come back the same boy he left. He just hope he comes back at all . . . Worst. Holiday. Ever is a story about facing fears, dealing with worries, and how it's OK to be anxious, scared, and sometimes a little bit brave.

              Have you ever experienced dreams so vivid it seems like you have lived them? Or had deja vu so strong you're convinced you must have been there before? For Genna, deja vu comes almost as regularly as breathing. And that's exactly what Genna thinks she is - regular. A regular scho...olkid, with a best friend who teases her for her love of history class, and parents who nag her about homework. But when a strange boy turns up in her life and starts acting like he knows her, it sets in motion a chain of events that turn Genna's world upside down. Her past is a lot more complicated than she could ever have expected - and her future even more so. Because Genna isn't regular at all.

And there are beings out there who will kill in order to stop her ...

Uma Gnuderson has a world full of questions: How can I save my home from being sold? Will my dad ever start talking again? And how do ...alpacas get drunk? But since her mum died, Uma's life has been short on answers. Until one day she finds a mysterious, futuristic Bluetooth headphone in the street, and starts to ask it questions. And it answers them.

Through Athena, Uma suddenly has the answer to every question she can imagine - and she is going to use them to save the day. But Uma soon realises that the shadowy corporation who lost Athena are looking for it - and that might put everyone she knows in more danger than she can possibly imagine.
