She likes a drink. Everyone has a problem. Hannah is seventeen. A drink makes her feel better. For a bit. But then she feels worse and the pain inside comes back. This is the story of Hannah’s addiction as seen by the people around her – her mum, her little sister, her best friend, her best friend’s mother, her mum’s boyfriend... Powerful and passionate, their voices shed a sometimes shocking, sometimes tender light on a life veering terrifyingly off course. ‘Campbell has taken the vilified, sprawling, drunken youths caricatured in tabloid headlines and, in one young girl, showed us the damaged human beings beneath.’ The Times ‘This superb book is sad, terrifying and uplifting in equal measure. Every parent, every young man or woman and anyone who “likes a drink” should read it.’ Anne Robinson

Andrews pries loose all the bitterness of what it means to come of age as a gay man in the south and laces sweetness in the wounds whenever possible. These poems are an elegy to what is given up and an ode to what is discovered. In crisp lines and haunting images, Andrews' voice rings true. - Sandy Longhorn

And The Dead Shall Rise. . . Two hellish years. That's how long it's been since the hurricanes flooded the Gulf Coast, and the dead rose up from the ruins. The cities were quarantined; the infected, contained. Any unlucky survivors were left to fend for themselves. A feast for the dead. And The Living Shall Gather. . . One boatload of refugees manages to make it out alive--but one passenger carries the virus. Within weeks, the zombie epidemic spreads across the globe. Now, retired U.S. Marshal Ed Moore must lead a group of strangers to safety, searching for sanctuary from the dead. A last chance for the living. Let The Battle Begin. In the North Dakota Grasslands, bands of survivors converge upon a single outpost. Run by a self-appointed preacher of fierce conviction--and frightening beliefs--it may be humanity's only hope. But Ed Moore and the others refuse to enter a suicide pact. They'd rather stand and fight in the final battle against the zombies. An apocalypse of the dead. "One of those rare books that starts fast and never ever lets up. . . a rollercoaster ride of action, violence and zombie horror." --Bram Stoker Award-winning author Jonathan Maberry on Dead City "Gritty suspense. . .You're gonna like this guy." --Tom Monteleone "A rising star on the horror scene."--Fearnet.com

Set in 2020, the first year of a united Ireland, Turas tells the story of seven friends, connected through a church cell group, and their spiritual journey through this significant time. One man struggles to come to terms with a skeleton in his past; another wrestles with the reality of an unhappy marriage and a dead-end job; one asks out a new girlfriend – and in doing so bites off more than he bargained for. Alongside these events the men are all living out their everyday lives dealing with their own unique challenges and disappointments. As the men meet together to study the Bible, in particular the story of Jeremiah and the exile to Babylon, they find the timeless book speaking to them in their current situation in a way they did not realise before was possible. At a range of key milestones in the year, the protagonists explore the meanings of these markers in their year, interpreting them in their own way. Focused on Ireland’s past, present and future, Turas will appeal to Irish residents and fans of Irish fiction. It will also reach those interested or involved in Christianity and Evangelicalism.

Colin is on a mission to prove The Theorem of Underlying Katherine Predictability, which he hopes will predict the future of any relationship, avenge Dumpees everywhere, and finally win him the girl. Love, friendship, and a dead Austro-Hungarian archduke add up to surprising and heart-changing conclusions in this ingeniously layered comic novel about reinventing oneself.

Locke Vinetti is a high school junior, disenchanted and more than a little hostile. In fact, for years he's had a lousy social life because of a problem he has with his anger--a force he calls "the venom." Ever since he was eight years old and bit off a piece of a classmate's nose, he's been something of a loner. But all that is about to change when he goes out with his one friend, Randall, to meet some of Randall's crew hanging out at Riverside Park. Because in addition to meeting his kindred spirit, Casey--who has his own problems with his own kind of venom--Locke meets the spikey blue fairy-haircut Goth girl of his dreams. And if their relationship is going to work, he knows he has to rid himself of the venom once and for all. Interspersed with comic book adventures of the fantasy anti-hero alter-ego Locke has invented for himself, VENOMOUS is a fast-paced, funny, and ferocious read about one teenage boy's struggle with his inner demons.
