    Jessica is 11 years old and loves drawing cartoons and making dinosaur cookies. Amelia is the new girl at school and quickly forms a bond with Natalie. Jessica feels left out and things get even worse when the others form a secret club that deliberately excludes her... To get revenge, Jessica forms a gang of her own and calls it the ACE club. Soon she's made an unlikely friend in one of the school's toughest girls and has the chance to stop Amelia's bullying for good.

    Jessica also finds herself paired up with arch-enemy Amelia in the school musical; and has to deal with the jealousy of others when a local comic shop wants to use her cartoons in a campaign...

    Written with wisdom, sensitivity and a fine sense of humour, these books will strike a chord with young readers who are experiencing similar issues at school. They will appeal to readers of Jacqueline Wilson, Anne Fine and Cathy Cassidy.

    Shortlisted for the Costa Children's Book Award and longlisted for the CILIP Carnegie Medal, Ross Welford's Time Travelling with a Hamster is a truly original debut novel from an extraordinarily talented new voice in children's books.

    When Al Chaudhury discovers his late dad's time machine, he finds that going back to the 1980s requires daring and imagination. It also requires lies, theft, burglary, and setting his school on fire. And he has to make sure he doesn't lose his pet hamster, Alan Shearer...

    You'll laugh, cry and wonder at this race-against-time story of a boy who travels back to 1984 to prevent a go-kart accident and save his father's life.

    The other three books - The 1,000-Year-Old Boy; What Not to Do If You Turn Invisible; and The Dog Who Saved the World - in our collection are equally surprising, exciting and magnificent: Alfie can remember the last Viking invasion but no one believes him... He soon loses everything in a fire and decides it's time to find a way to die; Ethel learns the joy that comes from being invisible is rather short-loved; and 12-year-old Georgie has to save every dog on Earth and all of humanity without leaving her room when a virtual reality experiment goes wrong.
