‘WHO NEEDS LOVE?’

BY ELISE PRIMAVERA

Scarlett Starlett and Simon Greensnout were best friends: they were also alligators who lived in a town menaced by a rotten-to-the-core witch. She hated anything sweet and nice and had no use for love.

Scarlett longed to be a singer and Simon yearned to travel the world.

One day, they stumbled upon a silver dollar that the witch had lost. In exchange for its return to her, the witch granted one wish.

But be careful what you wish for, because this wish came with an evil spell attached….

‘RECON TEAM ANGEL:

THE ASSAULT’

BY BRIAN FALKNER

It’s 2030, and humanity is losing the war against alien invaders.

A team of six has been chosen to infiltrate the enemy’s headquarters in the heart of the Australian Outback.

The six teens have been modified to look like aliens. They have spent years mastering alien culture so that they can talk, act — even think — like their enemies.

But from the start, the recon mission goes terribly wrong. It’s only when they are close to discovering the shocking truth of the aliens’ plans that the team is forced to question who among them is a traitor.

Ages 12 and up.
