Fröhlich, Anja (Author) Schmidt, Silke (Illustrator)

Paulina is head over heels in love! She’s never had it this bad before. But instead of roses raining for Paulina, chaos reigns! That’s because Paulina is not the only one to have noticed that Liam Broadshoe is the coolest boy in school; Muckel, her best friend, has also fallen in love with him. Paulina’s Mum is in the opposite situation; she is coolly dating two men at once. Paulina decides that this state of affairs simply cannot continue and forges a plan. Anja Fröhlich tells two-and-a-half unconventional love stories – without tugging at heartstrings or squeezing tear ducts, but with amusing pictures by Silke Schmidt. A wonderfully whacky story of friendship and family. And the craziest story about falling in and out of love. | 12 +

Her friend Katya thinks that’s totally cool, although she could happily do without this particular gift. Then again, she would never have thought that her talents could get her onto the television, help her save her grandpa and find her first love.
Birgit Hasselbusch presents a whole firework display of ideas. Crazy, full of different angles and with lots of unexpected twists and turns.
An imaginative story about two special gifts – that are both a curse and a blessing.
Reading forwards and backwards allowed!
An incredibly imaginative story.
Exciting and entertaining to the last sentence.

Scheerer, Jana (Author)

Girls Gourmets Guerilla Going-on
Pia’s life is pretty busy just now. Ever since her friend Georgia has been obsessed with the idea of starting a guerilla restaurant in the school basement, all her time has been taken up with filming the goings-on on her video camera and uploading it onto YouTube. To start with, her other friends, Anke, Paula and Julie, aren’t really keen on the idea of wielding a wooden spoon, but when their culinary efforts are appreciated and Pia starts seeing hearts whenever the caretaker’s son is around, the whole thing seems to be a win-win affair. At least, that is, until horrid Valeska shows her claws and looks like exposing the whole project…

Jana Scheerer’s story of a friendship and an unusual idea are woven into a book that is fun-packed and so gripping it’s hard to put down.

A crazy plan and chaotic cooks in a tumultuous story of ups and downs that has a happy ending.

Mallon, Lina (Author)

How I became the woman I am now.

In her latest book, Lina Mallon writes about the female friends and other women who have affected her life. With great frankness and openness, she describes real support, unexpected opposition, friendship disappointments, the strength of Girl Power, and the dilemma in which women of all ages can find themselves: meeting the expectations of society whilst fulfilling their own dreams and desires. Our greatest challenge is not to lose ourselves at this point but to find our own way as women. Above all, Mallon emphasises the importance of women mutually supporting one another, being honest with one another, and even being able to criticise one another in a positive way so that they can grow together rather than competing with one another.
