    A fantasy series that will transport you back to the 14th century, Marie Lu's The Young Elites series is packed with action and will appeal to fans of Harry Potter, X-Men and Game of Thrones.

    You're introduced to Adelina Amouteru, a survivor of the blood fever - a deadly illness that swept through the nation a decade ago. While many perished, those children who survived were left with strange markings. Adelina's black hair turned silver, her lashes went pale and she now has a jagged scar where her left eye once was. Her cruel father believes she is a malfetto (an abomination ruining their family's name and standing in the way of their fortune).

    However, some of the fever's survivors are believed to have mysterious and powerful gifts. Although their identities remain secret, they're known as the Young Elites. Enzo Valenciano is a member of the Dagger Society, a group who seek out Young Elites before the Inquisition Axis - led by Teren Santor, who believes the Young Elites will destroy the nation - can. When Enzo finds Adelina, he's amazed by her powers... soon, the lives of these three are intertwined in ways none of them would have expected. What does remain clear is Adelina has special abilities, but also a darkness inside her that could become all too powerful...

As Faith searches for this tree she finds herself getting into greater danger. She quickly realises these lies could shatter the truths her world has been built around...

    The Maze Runner films starring Dylan O'Brien, Kaya Scodelario and Aidan Gillen have proven to be huge successes, but we reckon you'll enjoy the sensational books even more. You won't believe what happens!

    Thomas wakes up all alone in a lift in The Maze Runner and all he can remember is his name... when this lift cranks open, he finds he has landed up at the Glade - a camp set up in the centre of a terrible maze. And then he meets the Gladers, an army of boys who are not too impressed with his arrival. When a girl arrives carrying a vital message, everyone will have to pull together to make it through the maze - or face certain death.

    The Catcher in the Rye has an enduring attraction that puts it at the top of a must-read list for young adults. The cynical observations of J. D. Salinger's central character, Holden Caulfield, condemn the phony posturing and hypocrisy of those around him.

    Holden is driven by vague, unspecified angst and unhappiness and manages to get caught up in a series of uncomfortable encounters with a prostitute, her pimp, an old girlfriend and a former teacher.

    The Catcher in the Rye is as thought-provoking and compulsive as the conflicts of its central character. Recommended for readers 14+.

    This edition has a new introduction by Paulo Coelho. "Siddhartha" is perhaps the most important and compelling moral allegory our troubled century has produced. Integrating Eastern and Western spiritual traditions with psychoanalysis and philosophy, this strangely simple tale, written with a deep and moving empathy for humanity, has touched the lives of millions since its original publication in 1922. Set in India, "Siddhartha" is the story of a young Brahmin's search for ultimate reality after meeting with the Buddha. His quest takes him from a life of decadence to asceticism, from the illusory joys of sensual love with a beautiful courtesan, and of wealth and fame, to the painful struggles with his son and the ultimate wisdom of renunciation.
