Flame
by Carla Kovach

Fifteen year old Sophie is a lonely girl whose father died. A lonely girl whose mother cares more about drinking than she does about Sophie. Tormented by dreams of her Father Ben’s tragic death, a ghostly boy and a blue door; she dreams of another world residing behind that blue door. At a new school, where she’s not popular with the teachers or the other pupils, Sophie meets Leila who suffers the taunts of the school bullies. Together they develop a close friendship, bonded by their unpopularity and unhappy home lives.

Spending time walking across Mill Fields to avoid going back to their miserable homes, Sophie leads Leila to an old derelict house ‘Sunflower Cottage.’ The house inspires much curiosity in the girls and promises to be a safe haven from their everyday lives. After a bad few days at home the girls decide to return to the house, not as curious visitors but as runaways. To Sophie’s surprise they find the blue door which draws them into a dangerous world with no obvious way of return; where danger resides in the house's very foundations.

DescriptionJack Roberts and Javier Arista have found an alien laboratory deep within the Marianna Trench. Inside the lab, its greatest secret has been discovered: the cure for all disease. When Jack and Javi release the formula to the world, their triumph is only short-lived. They learn that data is missing, preventing its development, much to the delight of the world’s most powerful pharmaceutical corporations. With their alien spacecraft lost at the bottom of the ocean, future visits to the lab to obtain the missing data seem hopeless… until Alfred Jameson, CEO of pharmaceutical corporation Anti-Gen, steps forward and offers his “services”. Alfred’s offer to help seems dubious at best, but with little other choice, both Jack and Javi agree to their new partnership.

Kendall's Storm
by
Janet Muirhead Hill

DescriptionTen-year-old Kendall's life isn't just unpredictable; everything about it is a mystery. Why can't he and Dad live in one place more than a few months? Why all the frantic all-night drives, the tucked-away motels, always being forced to leave his few belongings behind? Does Dad really work for the FBI, or is the truth actually too terrible to imagine? Kendall's biggest questions, the ones he has learned are forbidden to ask, are why Kendall was taken from his mother and twin sister when he was four years old, and what has become of them since? Are they alive? Why can't he see them.
