The Road of Bones by Anne Fine

838833Told who to cheer for, who to believe in, Yuri grows up in a country where no freedom of thought is encouraged – where even one’s neighbours are encouraged to report any dissension to the authorities.

But it is still a shock when a few careless words lead him to a virtual death-sentence – sent on a nightmare journey up north to a camp amidst the frozen wastes.

What, or who, can he possibly believe in now? Can he even survive? And is escape possible … ?

COMING SOON: Read Me Like a Book by Liz Kessler

10526029_10152810313930406_3676136487474039380_nAshleigh Walker is in love. You know the feeling – that intense, heart-racing, all-consuming emotion that can only come with first love. It’s enough to stop her worrying about bad grades at college. Enough to distract her from her parents’ marriage troubles. There’s just one thing bothering her . . .

Shouldn’t it be her boyfriend, Dylan, who makes her feel this way – not Miss Murray, her English teacher?
