Description: Abandinus, a little-known Celtic deity, finds a new purpose in his eternal life - sorting out thirteen-year-old Kevin's human one!An exciting wish-fulfillment read from the winner of The Blue Peter Book of the Year Award, Ali Sparkes.
Synopsis: It's just a regular trip for Kevin, and he comes back with just the regular sorts of things. Some local fudge, a scented candle for his mum ...and his own personal god. It's Abandinus, a little-known Celtic deity, who has suddenly found a new purpose in his eternal life - sorting out Kevin's. With a god on your side, everything's going to get a lot easier, isn't it? After all, a god can get stuff done. The trouble is, it's not always the kind of stuff Kevin has in mind! Funny and exciting, this is an unputdownable adventure from the author of Frozen in Time - winner of the Blue Peter Book of the Year Award!

The Sun is also a Star
By: NICOLA YOON
Natasha: I'm a girl who believes in science and facts. Not fate. Not destiny. Or dreams that will never come true. I'm definitely not the kind of girl who meets a cute boy on a crowded New York City street and falls in love with him. Not when my family is twelve hours away from being deported to Jamaica. Falling in love with him won't be my story.
