The Room

Author:

Jonas Karlsson/Neil Smith

Synopsis:

The Authority looks favourably upon meticulousness, efficiency and ambition. Bjorn has all of this in spades, but it's only in the room that he can really shine. And it's only in the room that he finds harmony, an escape from the triviality of the workplace. Unfortunately, his colleagues see things differently. In fact, they don't appear to see the room at all - eventually leaving Bjorn convinced that they are conducting some sort of psychological warfare against him. But who is right? Is the room a figment of an overactive imagination, the spectre of a mental illness? Or is there something more mysterious going on?

Things We Have In Common

Author:

Tasha Kavanagh

Synopsis:

The first time I saw you, you were standing at the edge of the playing field. You were looking down at your little brown straggly dog - but then you looked up, your mouth going slack as your eyes clocked her. Alice Taylor. I was no different. I used to catch myself gazing at the back of her head in class, at her silky fair hair swaying beneath her shoulder blades. If you'd glanced just once across the field, you'd have seen me standing in the middle on my own, looking straight at you. But you didn't. You only had eyes for Alice...

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.

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...
