Truth In Advertising

Author:

John Kenney

Synopsis:

Finbar Dolan is lost and lonely - except he doesn't know it. Despite escaping his blue-collar upbringing to carve out a mildly successful career at an advertising agency, he's a bit of a mess and closing in on forty. He's recently called off his wedding; and now, a few days before Christmas, he's forced to cancel a vacation in order to write, produce, and edit a Super Bowl commercial for his diaper account in record time. Then he learns that his long-estranged and once-abusive father has fallen ill, and that neither his brothers nor his sister intend to visit. It's a wake-up call for Fin to reevaluate the choices he's made, admit that he's falling for coworker Phoebe, question the importance of diapers in his life, and finally tell the truth about his past...

Silent Noon

Author:

Trilby Kent

Synopsis:

September, 1953: Fourteen-year-old Barney Holland is promised a fresh start when he is offered a place at a boarding school on the remote North Sea island of Lindsey. Instead, he is shunned by his peers both for his status as a charity pupil and for being the replacement of a recently deceased student, the popular Cray. The arrival of Belinda Flood provides Barney with an unexpected ally, and both outsiders soon fall under the influence of charismatic senior pupil Ivor Morrell, who reigns over the forbidden corners of the school. Gripped by mounting horror at his discovery of secrets harboured by the isolated school community, Barney desires nothing more than to escape the island - and its haunted past - once and for all.

The Hoarder

Author:

Jess Kidd

Synopsis:

Maud Drennan, underpaid carer and unintentional psychic, is the latest in a long line of dogsbodies for the ancient, belligerent Cathal Flood. Yet despite her best efforts, Maud finds herself drawn into the mysteries concealed in his filthy, once-grand home. She realises that something is changing: Cathal, and the junk-filled rooms, are opening up to her. With only her agoraphobic landlady and a troop of sarcastic ghostly saints to help, Maud must recover what lies beneath Cathal's decades-old hostility, and the strange activities of the house itself. And if someone has hidden a secret there, how far will they go to ensure it remains buried?

Snapper

Author:

Brian Kimberling

Synopsis:

Nathan Lochmueller is one of the few people who can claim to have been paid for their services as a birdwatcher. Time moves sluggishly in southern Indiana, leaving Nathan free to observe the courtship rituals of the bald eagle, skip stones with friends, and reflect on his on-off relationship with the enigmatic Lola. His Indiana is a landscape of contradictions: where turtles can turn dangerous, armed Klansmen gather in the woods at dawn, and truckers drop into the town of Santa Claus to ensure that no child's Christmas letter remains unanswered. So Nathan's going to have a tough time tearing himself away from it all...

Stalky & Co.

Author:

Rudyard Kipling

Synopsis:

Kipling portrays school as the first stage of a much larger game, a pattern-maker for the experiences of life. Implied throughout the stories is the question, 'What happened to these fifteen-year-old boys, and how did the lessons they learned at school apply to the world of warfare and imperial government?' The stories are based on Kipling's own school, the United Services College at Westward Ho! in Devon, which prepared boys destined for the army or for colonial service; Kipling himself appears as the subordinate character, Beetle.

Sal

Author:

Synopsis:

Sal planned it for almost a year before they ran. She nicked an Ordnance Survey map from the school library.

And now Sal knows a lot of stuff. Like how to build a shelter and start a fire. How to estimate distances, snare rabbits and shoot an airgun. And how to protect her sister, Peppa. Because Peppa is ten, which is how old Sal was when Robert started on her...
