    Written in a fun-filled diary format, these books offer an insight into the life of the tween dork, Nikki. When she moves to a new school she decides it's the perfect time to leave her old lame ways behind - but things are never that simple.

    With fun sketches and doodles, the diary entries find Nikki opening up her heart as she battles with her arch-nemesis Mackenzie over her dreams of becoming a pop star and tackles the subject of love with hilariously dorky consequences.

    These books will be enjoyed by any child aged 9 or over who enjoys (or endures!) the sparklier side of tween life.

    This collection features Frances Hardinge's Costa Book of the Year winner The Lie Tree alongside two other deliciously dark and twisted tales. They're suitable for ages 12 and over, but we wouldn't be surprised if adults find themselves fully absorbed into these rich worlds...

    In The Lie Tree, Faith's father is found dead under very mysterious circumstances. While searching through his belongings for clues, she discovers a strange tree that only grows healthy and bears fruit if you whisper a lie to it. This fruit will then deliver a hidden truth to anyone who eats it...

    Cuckoo Song is a beautifully eerie story that was shortlisted for the Carnegie Medal. Triss wakes up after an accident and knows something is off. She's hungry; her sister is scared of her and her parents are whispering. She looks in her diary to find out what happened but the pages have been ripped out. Her quest for the truth takes her to places more strange and terrible than she could have ever imagined...

    Fly by Night is Frances' wonderfully inventive debut novel about a 12-year-old girl and her bad-tempered goose who become the unlikely heroes of a radical revolution.

    Roald Dahl Funny Prize-shortlisted author Mark Lowery's hilarious books following the misadventures of Roman Garstang will appeal to fans of Barry Loser, The 13-Storey Treehouse and The World of Norm.

    Delightfully gross and very funny, The Jam Doughnut that Ruined My Life follows Roman as his week becomes a jam-filled disaster all because of one solitary doughnut. Shortly after tucking into his Monday morning doughnut, Roman's week takes a sticky turn - he finds himself banned from eating for 24 hours, narrowly avoiding a faceful of warm toddler wee and being given a lift in a getaway van. He even finds time to style his teacher's guinea pig into a blue mohawk...

    In Attack of the Woolly Jumper, Roman's wearing a sweatshirt knitted by his Grandma when his school receives a royal visit. As part of the school's fundraising efforts, Roman's been sponsored to wear this crummy jumper ('crumper') all week - no matter what happens. Of course, within days it's almost been thrown down a toiler, caused a swan attack and made a biker swerve off the road.

    The Chicken Nugget Ambush finds Roman being put on a chicken nugget-only diet by his mum - just before going on an outdoor adventure trip; The Great Caravan Catastrophe has Roman's cousin marrying the cousin of 'The Worst Person Who Ever Lived'; and Revenge of the Spaghetti Hoops follows Roman as he vows to take a starring role in an ex-pupil's reality TV show.
