Reservoir 13
by Jon McGregor
The Witch's Tears
by Katharine & Elizabeth Corr
Good Me Bad Me
by Ali Land
From the award-winning author of If Nobody Speaks of Remarkable Things and Even the Dogs. Reservoir 13 tells the story of many lives haunted by one family's loss. A teenage girl goes missing in the hills at the heart of England. And as the search for the missing girl goes on, so does everyday life. As it must. An extraordinary novel of cumulative power and grace, Reservoir 13 explores the rhythms of the natural world and the repeated human gift for violence, unfolding over thirteen years as the aftershocks of a stranger's tragedy refuse to subside. It's not easy being a teenage witch. Just ask Merry. She's drowning in textbooks and rules set by the coven; drowning in heartbreak after the loss of Jack. But Merry's not the only one whose fairy tale is over. Big brother Leo is falling apart and everything Merry does seems to push him further to the brink. And everything that happens to Leo makes her ache for revenge. So when strangers offering friendship show them a different path they'd be mad not to take it...Some rules were made to be broken, right? The darkly magical sequel to The Witch's Kiss burns wickedly bright. Set to be one of the most extraordinary, controversial and explosive debuts of 2017 - for fans of quality psychological suspense: once you read this book you'll want to talk about it. Annie's mother is a serial killer. The only way she can make it stop is to hand her in to the police. But out of sight is not out of mind. As her mother's trial looms, the secrets of her past won't let Annie sleep, even with a new foster family and name - Milly. Good Me Bad Me is a tour de force: in its narrator, Milly Barnes, we have a voice to be reckoned with, and in its author, Ali Land, an extraordinary new talent.

The Keeper of Lost Things
by Ruth Hogan
by Fiona Cummins
In Tom Barren's 2016, humanity thrives in a techno-utopian paradise of flying cars and moving sidewalks, but in a time-travel mishap, Tom finds himself stranded in our 2016. For Tom, our normal reality seems like a dystopian wasteland. But when he discovers wonderfully unexpected versions of his family, his career, and - maybe, just maybe - his soulmate, Tom has a decision to make. Does he bring back his Utopian universe, or does he try to forge a new life in our messy, unpredictable reality? Back to the Future meets One Day in this comic love story of two worlds and the man who must choose - for everyone. With an unforgettable cast of characters including young girls with special powers, handsome gardeners, irritable ghosts and an array of irresistible four-legged friends, The Keeper of Lost Things is a debut novel of endless possibilities and joyful discoveries that will leave you bereft once you've finished reading. Anthony Peardew has spent half his life lovingly collecting lost objects. Realising he is running out of time, he leaves his house and all its lost treasures to his assistant Laura, the one person he can trust to fulfil his legacy and reunite the thousands of objects with their rightful owners... He has planned well. He leads two lives. In one he's just like anyone else. But in the other he is the caretaker of his family's macabre museum. What happens next is a terrifying cat-and-mouse game between the sinister collector and Etta Fitzroy, a troubled detective investigating a spate of abductions. Set in London's Blackheath, Rattle explores the seam of darkness that runs through us all; the struggle between light and shadow, redemption and revenge.
