    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.

    Written by Malala for her peers, this is the girl behind the Nobel Prize-winning icon. Film tie-in edition with HE NAMED ME MALALA, released 6th November, which tells Malala's story from Nobel Peace Prize to netball courts. Malala is the most significant teenager of the twenty first century. She was only ten years old when the Taliban took control of her region. They said music was a crime. They said women weren't allowed to go to the market. They said girls couldn't go to school. Raised in a once-peaceful area of Pakistan transformed by terrorism, Malala was taught to stand up for what she believes. So she fought for her right to be educated. And on 9 October, 2012, she nearly lost her life for the cause. She was shot point-blank on her way home from school. No one expected her to survive. Now she is an international symbol of peaceful protest and the youngest-ever Nobel Peace Prize winner. This is the remarkable story of a girl who knew from a young age that she wanted to change the world-and did. It will open your eyes to another world and will make you believe in hope, truth, miracles, and the determination of one person to inspire change. 'It's a searing and personal portrait of a young woman who dared to make a difference' PW
