    You've seen the hit film starring Dylan O'Brien, Will Poulter and Kaya Scodelario; now's the time to read up on James Dashner's Maze Runner series - you won't believe what happens next!

    Starting with The Maze Runner and all Thomas can remember is his name. When the lift cranks open, he finds he's not alone and has landed up at the Glade - an encampment at the centre of a terrible maze. Surrounding him is an army of boys known as the Gladers... But when a girl arrives with a message, everyone will have to work together to escape the maze - or risk dying!

    The Scorch Trials and The Death Cure continue the story with even more shocks, thrills and spills... A combination of The Hunger Games, Lord of the Flies and Patrick Ness' Chaos Walking trilogy, these are young adult novels of the highest calibre.

    Struggling to keep on top of his rent, young graduate Monocle takes the only job he can find - the lowest-ranked chef at a gastropub in Camden Town, London.

    When Monocle starts cooking, he realises it's not quite the job he'd expected. He's working with a group of deranged hoodlums who all seem to be at the mercy of head chef Bob - an ingenious sadist with a kitchen knife!

    Full of perfectly observed black humour, Simon Wroe draws on personal experiences from his own career as a chef to bring the laugh-out-loud antics of a professional kitchen to the page - while also telling the touching story of a young man trying to find his way in the world.

    The debut novel from award-winning YouTube phenomenon Zoella (or Zoe Sugg), Girl Online is a semi-autobiographical tale of romance that tackles many of the issues that modern teens have to deal with today - such as cyber bullying, self-esteem and anxiety.

    Penny has a secret. She's the girl behind GirlOnline, an online teen lifestyle blog where she anonymously 'pens' the goings on of her life: school dramas, boys, her mad family - and the panic attacks that she has been suffering from lately. As the panic attacks worsen, Penny's parents take her on a trip to New York where she meets Noah, a guitar-wielding heartthrob, and Penny soon starts to fall in love. But Noah has a secret too, and this secret could ruin Penny's cover...

    Having established herself as a big sister to the 6 million plus subscribers on her Zoella YouTube channel, Zoe Sugg's Girl Online is a compelling story of a modern girl who readers aged 11 and above will both sympathise and associate with.

    • £4.99
    • RRP £12.99
    • Save £8.00
    Delightfully warm and funny, Fredrik Backman's A Man Called Ove is one of the biggest word-of-mouth books of 2014 and is sure to delight fans of Harold Fry and The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of a Window and Disappeared.

    You'd think Ove to be the grumpiest man you've ever met. Surrounded by idiots who can't reverse a trailer properly, code-speaking shop assistants and vicious perpetrators of the coup that saw him ousted as Chairman of the Residents' Association, Ove truly is the neighbour from hell - and his poor unsuspecting neighbours regularly fall foul of his overbearing nature and insistence for following rules. But there's more to Ove than meets the eye...

    Written in charmingly lyrical prose, each of the short chapters stands alone as a beautifully crafted short story and as readers delve further into the book, they will begin to understand that Ove is much more than the grumpy-old-man facade that he portrays. A positively uplifting debut!
