The Twice-Lived Summer of Bluebell Jones
What if you could have a second chance?
All Bluebell Jones wants for her thirteenth birthday is to be someone else: a carefree, confident teenager, like her big sister Tiger. Mum and Dad’s band are playing tiny Welsh seaside town Penkerry all summer long, so this is it: her big chance to transform into a whole new girl, before Mum’s new baby arrives and she’s a big sister too.
But she won’t have to do it alone. When Blue blows out her birthday candle, up pops Red, her fourteen-year-old self: brave, snarky, and surrounded by brilliant friends – Fifties-obsessed Fozzie, Dan the Donut, and the mysterious, charming Merlin. Red’s everything Blue wants to be. With her help from the future, predicting every embarrassing mis-step, Blue’s guaranteed to have the summer of her life.
But Red’s got a secret…
‘Don’t look so appalled, Blue. People lie to themselves all the time.’

My Invisible Boyfriend
15-year-old Heidi is stuck at the boarding school for drop-outs where her parents teach, with only a cake-shop Saturday job to escape to. She’s always been the new, odd, geeky kid – so when her coupled-up friends assume she’s got a secret boyfriend, she can’t resist going along with the idea.
Enter Gingerbread Ed, a sexy lovemuppet with a motorbike. He’d be perfect – if only he was real, instead of based on Mycroft Christie, her favourite time-travelling TV detective. But now her friends are sending him all kinds of revealing messages… Will all those little white lies destroy Heidi’s chance at real romance – and all her real friendships with it?
