New Fiction – April

Posted by SalesianLibrary on April 11, 2008

Every month the Library receives books, that have been picked out for us. The following books have recently been added to our collection, and can be found on the fiction shelf or on the New Fiction Stand.

Kill the Possum by James Moloney: (MOL)
A girl desperate to live a normal life.
A family tormented by a monster’s cruelty.
Two boys with a plan to make him stop.

At Seventeen by Celeste Walters: (WAL)
Loss and gain come not in equal measure at Seventeen.
Forced to board in her final years of school, Catherine struggles to fit in and feels awkward and different. But then a collection of words and pictures left by her grandmother helps her to piece together a tragic family secret. The more she learns about the past, the more she learns about herself.
Celeste Walters new book is a confronting look at what it means to be seventeen.

Before I Die by Jenny Downham: (DOW)
Everyone has to die. We all know it.
With only a few months of life left, sixteen-year-old Tessa knows it better than most.
She’s made a list though – ten things she wants to do before she dies. Number one is sex. Starting tonight.
But getting what you want isn’t easy. And getting what you want doesn’t always give you what you need. And sometimes the most unexpected things become important.
Uplifting, life-affirming, joyous – this extraordinary novel celebrates what it is to be alive by confronting what it’s really like to die.
