First, You Betray Your Conscience. Then You Betray Your Family

A teen fiction first: young people in the GDR being turned into unofficial collaborators by the Stasi

When his grandmother has to move to a care home, Sebastian has to move in with his father, who left their family when Sebastian was just a baby. He feels no connection with this man who served a life sentence and barely addresses a word to him. It is, however, better than going back to that dreadful children’s home which Social Services initially placed him in – and where he came to care secretly about Katja, who ran away. One day, though, a man appears at Sebastian’s school and forces him to agree to spy on his teachers and schoolmates. He turns him into an unofficial Stasi collaborator, and persuades him to spy on his own father. | 14 +

              Cookies, kisses, catastrophes!

              Holidays at last! But for Charlotte, the trip she was planning with her friends won’t be happening because she doesn’t have the money.

Together, the three cook up the perfect plan for turning the sandwich bar into something really cool. Sound good? Yes, but it all gets pretty complicated, too, because Jamie is in love with Rosalie (who isn’t interested in him), Metin thinks he’s mad about Charlotte, and Charlotte doesn’t know which of the two is cuter, Jamie or Metin…

              Usch Luhn’s story of city kids and their escapades is infused with Berlin atmosphere, and contains an amazing plan and stacks of tasty cookies. With some fantastic cookie recipes at the back!

                                          The red-hot fourth volume of the "City of Elements" series by Nena Tramountani.

                                          The Talenti find themselves increasingly ravelled up in the power struggle between Omilia and the Phos rebels. Phos has, it's true, liberated Kiana's parents, but they still don't trust him - rightly so, as it turns out: he killed Gaia and has been manipulating Melamarcia to fit in with his plans. Nero duly murders Phos, but Melamarcia has long since become enslaved to the dark side, as William surmised. Nero therefore pits himself against her and sacrifices himself for Kiana and Tessarect.

                                          Highly praised young author of immense potential.

The fact that her former crush Niyol suddenly re-appears in her life and shamelessly takes up flirting with her again - months after they had put a stop to this - doesn't exactly help matters. Meanwhile, Nero resorts to ever more drastic measures in order to maintain the continued segregation of the elements, and Kia feels compelled to make contact with Phos, the leader of the rebels. Can he become an important ally in the fight against Omilia? On her search for trustworthy allies, Kia has to work closely with Will and Niyol, and ultimately has to confront the ultimate question. To whom does her heart really belong?

                                                  “Oh, yes it is. Our lives are bound up with each other whether you like it or not.”

                                                  Kia’s gift takes her right to the brink between life and death, but still she secretly continues to use it because she feels she simply must understand it fully before Omilia does, and she’s doing all she can to worm Kia’s secret out of her. Nero says she’s doing it to help her, and as proof that he can be trusted, he takes her to see her natural parents, who are languishing in a sanatorium. Did their forbidden love really drive them crazy? William and Kia aim to uncover the truth and receive help in that from an unexpected quarter. Their search takes them far below the earth – and to the very depths of their own hearts: How certain can Kia be that Will’s feelings for her are genuine when, as her inventi, he always reflects her own?

In the morning it’s her teacher, Godfrey Hardhead-Sainthouse, the rest of the day, her mum and her half-sister, Anastasia. Never ever would she have thought that things could get any worse. But then her mother pays a visit to a fortune teller – and chaos takes its course. Anja Fröhlich sets the normal madness of puberty down on paper.

It’s a nightmare for Maya because although she’s a member of the school orchestra, she’s also the life and soul of the party. In fact, she is the best saxophonist around – and a rising rock star. But then Maya meets Theo, the good-looking guitarist at the youth centre. Perhaps Munich isn’t as dull as Maya thought, after all?

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 +

In the night, she sometimes hears a voice telling her who will soon be falling in love with whom. 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.

Like Alice in Wonderland, the girl suddenly disappears through a gateway into an unfamiliar world. Dirk Steinhöfel takes his readers into landscapes of pristine beauty, down into deep wells, up to tall mountain peaks, and through fire, ice and deserts. Each of the different stops along their way is accompanied and inspired by books, and Steinhöfel finds images of tremendous creative power that illustrate the magic of literature. A wonderfully artistic journey into the realm of fantasy with magnificent pictures of enchanting beauty. For everyone who believes in the power of words!

What better reason to share the details of her chaotic life with others? So she starts to write a blog. This deals not only with the size of her boobs (more or less zilch…) and the question of how to get to know boys (success: also more or less zilch), but also about mothers who serve cocoa at birthday parties, bits of toilet paper hanging out of pants and babysitter jobs that go hopelessly wrong. Betty seems to find putting her foot in it wherever she possibly can utterly irresistible!
