On The Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta


Original Title: On The Jellicoe Road

Taylor Markham is not a popular choice. She is erratic, has no people skills and never turns up to meetings. Not to mention the incident when she ran off in search of her mother and only got halfway there. But she's lived at Jellicoe School most of her life and as leader of the boarders that's her greatest asset. Especially now the cadets, led by the infamous Jonah Griggs, have arrived. The territory wars between the boarders, townies and cadets are about to recommence. But Taylor has other things on her mind: a prayer tree, the hermit who whispered in her ear, and a vaguely familiar drawing in the local police station. Taylor wants to understand the mystery of her own past. But Hannah, the woman who found her, has suddenly disappeared, leaving nothing but an unfinished manuscript about five kids whose lives entwined twenty years ago on the Jellicoe Road . . .

Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta


Original Title: Jellicoe Road

Hannah, en af de få personer Taylor stoler på, er forsvundet. Taylors eneste spor er et manuskript om fem børn, der for 18 år siden boede på Jellicoe road. Hun er nødt til at finde ud af mere, men det betyder, at hun må konfrontere sin egen historie og finde den mor, der forlod hende på Jellicoe road mange år tidligere. Pressen skrev: »En medrivende og særdeles vellykket, men kompleks roman i grænselandet mellem realisme og fantasy. Målgruppen er unge bogslugere fra 15 år.« – Lars Larsen, Lektør »Det er en interessant og intens, men kompliceret roman med en bevægende afslutning.« – Kirsten Aggerholm, Børn & Bøger

Saving Francesca by Melina Marchetta


Original Title: Saving Francesca

Before there was Eleanor and Park, there was Francesca and Will. A compelling story of romance, family, and friendship, with humor and heart, perfect for fans of If I Stay, The Spectacular Now, and Looking for Alaska. Francesca is stuck at St. Sebastian’s, a boys' school that pretends it's coed by giving the girls their own bathroom. Her only female companions are an ultra-feminist, a rumored slut, and an impossibly dorky accordion player. The boys are no better, from Thomas, who specializes in musical burping, to Will, the perpetually frowning, smug moron that Francesca can't seem to stop thinking about. Then there's Francesca's mother, who always thinks she knows what's best for Francesca—until she is suddenly stricken with acute depression, leaving Francesca lost, alone, and without an inkling of who she really is. Simultaneously humorous, poignant, and impossible to put down, this is the story of a girl who must summon the strength to save her family, her social life, and—hardest of all—herself. Melina Marchetta is the Printz-winning author of Jellicoe Road, as well as Looking for Alibrandi and Finnikin of the Rock.

Frankie by Shivaun Plozza


Original Title: Frankie

A genre-hopping, darkly funny novel about searching for the truth, finding yourself, and falling in love. Frankie Vega is angry. Just ask the guy whose nose she broke. Or the cop investigating the burglary she witnessed, or her cheating ex-boyfriend, or her aunt who's tired of giving second chances. When a kid shows up claiming to be Frankie's half brother, it opens the door to a past she doesn't want to remember. And when that kid goes missing, the only person willing to help is a boy with stupidly blue eyes, a criminal record, and secrets of his own. Frankie's search for the truth could change her life, or cost her everything. “Readers will love Frankie for her courage, passion, and honesty as a narrator. A powerful debut about a girl learning to love despite the dangers.” —ALA Booklist “A gritty, darkly witty debut.” —Kirkus Reviews “Frankie's a great, gutsy character, full of heart.” —Printz Award winner Melina Marchetta, author of The Jellicoe Road and Saving Francesca “Original, and often obscenely funny. I frequently laughed aloud while reading Frankie.” —Australian Book Review “This is a great debut novel from a fantastic new Australian author, Shivaun Plozza. It has everything YA fiction needs to be captivating: mystery, tough women, annoyingly cute bad boys, sarcasm, and humor. Highly recommended.” —Readings Monthly
