The Adults

Author:

Caroline Hulse

Synopsis:

Claire and Matt are no longer together, but decide what's best for their daughter Scarlett is to have a 'normal' family Christmas. They can't agree on who said they should bring their new partners, but it's too late to pull the plug. Claire brings her new boyfriend Patrick, a seemingly sensible eligible-from-a-distance Iron-Man-in-Waiting. Matt brings Alex - funny, smart, and extremely patient. Scarlett, their daughter, brings her imaginary friend Posey. He's a rabbit. The grown-ups grit their teeth over Forced Fun activities, drinking a little too much after bed-time, and oversharing classified secrets about their pasts; and before you know it, their holiday is a powder keg that ends where this story starts: with a frightened, tearful call to the police. But what happened? They said they'd all be ADULTS about this...

A gift called iRachel, a humanoid robot. Not just one that can carry out tasks, but one that can also express empathy and be a companion. At first, Aidan and Chloe are convinced that having Rachel's neater, calmer twin in the house is creepy. Then they get to know her.

King Power

Author:

Richard III

Synopsis:

On 25th March 2015, when King Richard III - recently rescued from a municipal car park - was reburied in Leicester Cathedral, his beloved football team had just lost 4-3 to Tottenham Hotspur. Bottom of the Premier League and teetering on the edge of relegation, the future of Leicester City FC looked bleak. But, with King Richard finally at rest, things were about to change... Here, in his own words, Richard himself tells the remarkable story of how these 5,000-1 Premier League outsiders became champions - the goals, games, and dressing-room banter which led to a triumph of Shakespearean proportions for this team of heroes.

You Me Everything

Author:

Catherine Isaac

Synopsis:

Jess and her ten-year-old son William set off to spend the summer at Chateau de Roussignol, deep in the rich, sunlit hills of the Dordogne. There, Jess's ex-boyfriend and William's father, Adam, runs a beautiful hotel in a restored castle. Jess is bowled over by what Adam has accomplished, but she's in France for a much more urgent reason: to make Adam connect with his own son. Jess can't allow Adam to let him down because she is tormented by a secret of her own, one that nobody - especially William - must discover yet. YOU ME EVERYTHING is a story about one woman's fierce determination to grab hold of the family she has and never let go, and a romance as heady as a crisp Sancerre on a summer's day.
