A funky novel, complete with funky title and funky cover from a bestselling author who is just brilliant at getting under the skin of that nearly teen market. Itâ€™s bursting with humour and charm despite the sometimes fraught friendships between family and friends. We also rate another novel of hers highy and itâ€™s called Bliss.
Winner of the Book Trust Teenage book award 2007 and shortlisted for the 2007 Carnegie Award and our favourite to win the award. Highly readable yet thought-provoking, mysterious yet chilling, and so perfectly paced that it is totally unputdownable. The quality of the writing is superb in this gothic tale and it is sure to transfix readers from 10 upwards. This, the paperback edition includes an exclusive, brand new short story called Blackbeard. From Hugh (12) - I loved it! I loved it even more than I loved The Book of Dead Days (another of Marcus Sedgwickâs thrilling novels). Normally I donât like horror books but this involved the reader so much more. At times I forgot the difference between myself and Peter! I felt his decisions and fears. I loved and hated the suspense and I even though I was so into the book I hadnât a clue what was going to happen. At times I had to force myself to shut the book if it was mealtimes or way past my bedtime. I thought that it was an amazing creation and I hope Marcus makes a fortune because he deserves it!

Winner of the Booktrust teenage prize in 2006, Henry Tumour is exceedingly funny, compulsive, thought-provoking, challenging, dark and tragic by turns. As Mal Peet, another author of brilliant teenage fiction said, ‘Henry Tumour is a boisterous, anarchic, frequently vulgar comedy. It is also a wise, sensitive, questioning novel about the opposing forces that make us what we are’.
Powerful photographs make their points eloquently and from them Al Gore argues passionately for everyone to do everything they can to slow down the rate at which the climate is being destroyed. The message is irresistible and Gore is hugely persuasive.
This is an incredibly thought-provoking, lyrically written debut, which astounded me time after time with each new page. Sharon has cleverly intertwined two strands to the novel, past and present, into what I can best describe as unputdownable and original. The characters are superbly drawn and although it might not have the happiest ending it was despite that, richly satisfying. From Barry Cunnigham, the Publisher:Sharon Dogar's terrific first novel is taut, neurotic, edge -of-consciousness stuff. And it is not only me who thinks so - you can trake Philip Pullman's word for it too. Somewhere between Wuthering Heights and Lovely Bones, it's almost a crime mystery, and certainly a love story. It's about life and death - literally.
