Year: 2021
Language: English
Media class: Paperback
Publisher: Faber
Resource type: Physical
Note: Originally published: New York: Celadon Books When a young writer dies before completing his first novel, his teacher, Jake, (himself a failed novelist) helps himself to its plot. The resulting book is a phenomenal success, but Jake worries: what if somebody out there knows? Somebody does. As Jake is increasingly tormented by accusations and threats, he learns more about his former student and the source of his marvellous plot - one that, it transpires, is an actual person's actual story. That actual person is furious. The closer Jake gets to the real people he's fictionalised, the more violence he unearths; if he can't figure out who he's dealing with, he risks something far worse than the loss of his career.

But within their home, the Sky City, not everyone is who they seem, and one people's gods are another's monsters.

Publisher: Hodder & Stoughton
Resource type: Physical
Note: Shiori'anma, the only princess of Kiata, has a secret. Forbidden magic runs through her veins. Normally she conceals it well, but on the morning of her betrothal ceremony, Shiori loses control. At first, her mistake seems like a stroke of luck, forestalling the wedding she never wanted, but it also catches the attention of Raikama, her stepmother. A sorceress in her own right, Raikama banishes the young princess, turning her brothers into cranes, and warning Shiori that she must speak of it to no one: for with every word that escapes her lips, one of her brothers will die. Penniless, voiceless, and alone, Shiori searches for her brothers, and uncovers a dark conspiracy to seize the throne. Only Shiori can set the kingdom to rights, but to do so she must place her trust in a paper bird, a mercurial dragon, as well as the very boy she fought so hard not to marry.

Author: Boyne, John
Year: 2021
Language: English
Media class: Hardback
Publisher: Doubleday
Resource type: Physical
Note: What a thing of wonder a mobile phone is. Six ounces of metal, glass and plastic, fashioned into a sleek, shiny, precious object. At once, a gateway to other worlds - and a treacherous weapon in the hands of the unwary, the unwitting, the inept. The Cleverley family live a gilded life, little realising how precarious their privilege is, just one tweet away from disaster. George, the patriarch, is a stalwart of television interviewing, a 'national treasure' (his words), his wife Beverley, a celebrated novelist (although not as celebrated as she would like), and their children, Nelson, Elizabeth, Achilles, various degrees of catastrophe waiting to happen. Together they will go on a journey of discovery through the Hogarthian jungle of the modern living where past presumptions count for nothing and carefully curated reputations can be destroyed in an instant.
