David Almond

Synopsis:

"I was born in a hovel on the banks of the Tyne..." Dominic Hall grows up in the sixties on a brand-new estate, along with the other families who escaped the river.

Dom is torn between his new mates: Holly Stroud, his enchanting neighbour, and Vincent McAlinden, who's something else altogether - a wild, dangerous boy with murderous instincts. After his mother's death, Dom has to decide who he is, what he wants to be - and then face up to the consequences.

Love And Freindship

Author:

Beth Andrews

Synopsis:

Written when Jane Austen was just fourteen years old, LOVE AND FREINDSHIP foreshadows the conflict between moral obligation and individual desire which animates the author's mature books. Now reworked in this sparkling satire, the story follows Isabel and her daughter Marianne when they attend the theatre in Bury St Edmunds. There, they encounter Isabel's old friend Laura, who gives Marianne her journal - which proves a revelation to the younger woman as she reads of one madcap romantic escapade after another. There is love at first sight, marriage the same day, exaggerated sentiment - and complete disregard for the feelings of others...
