      ''Then the prince turns to me and our eyes meet. I feel the hammering of my heart all the way up to my throat. There's still an undercurrent of danger that emanates from him.
      \x09'Your first time on a ship?' The corners of his mouth twitch, as if this amuses him.
      \x09So what. 'Yes, Your Highness.'
      \x09'Well?'
      \x09I make a sweeping gesture toward the sea. 'Fantastic! This openness, this freedom!'
      \x09My voice must have betrayed my wistfulness, because he lifts his brows, looking surprised. 'As a kitchen maid, you can decide whether to go or to stay, can't you? I don't have a choice. I'm not even allowed to choose who I want to marry.' Resentment and bitterness resonate in his words.
      \x09'It's not that much different for me, Your Highness,' I say. 'If I were free to do what I want there'd be nothing that could force me to take part in this bridal search. Not even your father's decree.' ''

                                        Justine’s life is turned upside down in more than one way: First she has to leave her beloved boarding school and attend an ordinary school instead – where there’s no hockey team, debating club or flute class. Then one evening in the garden, she is hit by ball lightning, which briefly puts her out of action. When she regains consciousness, everything seems fine at first, but the following day at school, she notices that things are anything but normal. Suddenly Justine can read the boys’ minds, at least where feelings are concerned. This results in some enlightening insights, but also pretty much in emotional chaos because there’s Lenny, who’s really cute and whose thoughts run wild when he’s near to Justine. But then they fall silent… | 12 +

                                                          Marine mystery, adventure and a wonderful friendship! For as long as she can remember, Alea has felt drawn to the sea. But she is also afraid of it because coming into contact with water could be fatal to her – that’s what Alea’s mother told her foster mother before she disappeared. One day, Alea joins the Alpha Cru kids, who sail the sea on a yacht. During the first big storm, Alea is swept overboard. After that, nothing is the same again.

                                                          The first book in the cool mermaid series by bestseller author Tanya Stewner (author of Liliane Susewind).

                                                            At last Alea knows why she has always felt so out of place: she’s a mermaid. But what happened to her natural mother eleven years ago and why does the underwater world seem so deserted? Alea cannot possibly be the only member of the merfolk left in the world! Little by little and with the aid of the Alpha Cru, Alea finds out more and more about where she came from. And she learns that Lennox is also half mer. Could that be why they feel so drawn to each other?

                                                              Paula’s auntie is getting married! Even better than that – she has asked Paula and Zina to be flower girls at the wedding. The big day finally arrives and everything is so gorgeous that the two girls feel almost like princesses in a fairy tale. The only little hiccup comes when Paula’s brother, Titus, almost forgets the rings – but luckily he has his sister to make sure nothing can go wrong at the altar. Author Ursel Scheffler’s latest book in the popular Paula series is written with humour and affection – and absolutely no slushy sentimentality. In other words, it’s typical Paula!

She grabs her first-day goodie bag that looks a bit like a giant ice-cream cone and slips out of the house and off to school. There she meets Philipp. He knows school like the back of his hand and he also knows that old books and a plastic skeleton are not the only things in the attic … | 5 +

                                                                  The man who is trying to get Marit away from Hamburg and the night-time blitzes of World War 2 to the safety of the Galapagos Islands is her uncle. But he is acting against her will because now that her father has been declared missing in France and her mother and little sister have both died in the bombing, all Marit wants to do is die. She dives off the ship in attempt to drown herself in the Atlantic as the ship approaches the Galapagos Islands but someone saves her. That someone is José, a local boy, who hauls her out of the water and onto his boat, the Mariposa, in the belief that he has rescued a British boy called Jonathon, who is really Marit using a false identity.
                                                                  José is on the way to the isla maldita to discover why people call it “curse island” and to find out if there is any truth in the tales of its legendary treasure. He takes Jonathon along and the two travellers are gradually joined by a variety of animals, as a rice rat, a penguin, an iguana, a flamingo and several other members of the animal kingdom find their way onto the boat as if by magic. They all help to raise Jonathon’s spirits and help him face life again.
                                                                  It becomes clear that the Mariposa is being followed and José seems to have a map on board that a few other people would dearly love to lay their hands on, too. The stowaway José and Jonathon discover one night is also after the map. In the end, he is the one who realises that Jonathon is really a girl.
                                                                  Marit and José survive storms and volcanic eruptions to arrive, at last, on the isla maldita. The map leads them to the treasure, which turns out to be nothing but a freshwater spring – which is disappointing, too, for the people who had been on the Mariposa’s tail. They are, in fact, American and German spies, who had thought they were after a map that could change the course of the war. On the island, Marit also discovers a second treasure: her family who had in turn believed her dead. They had flown the war to the safety of the Galapagos Islands Marit’s mother had dreamed of all her life. José returns to his native island but remains in contact with Marit. | 11 +

One day, a prince discovers the tower and climbs all the way up Rapunzel's long hair to the room where she is held. The two fall deeply in love with each other. But then the sorceress discovers the prince. Retold for children and colourfully illustrated by Eleni Livianos. | 3 +

Dream agents are specialists who watch over people’s dreams to prevent their souls from taking harm as they sleep and also to prevent the fine membrane that separates our dreams from the real world from becoming torn. Hardly has Allegra arrived at the academy, however, she realises the agents themselves are in the greatest danger and that they must have a traitor in their ranks. When Allegra’s own sister vanishes during dreamtime, a life-and-death struggle begins.

                                                                      A thrilling, fast-paced novel about the world of dreams, which is far from being as safe as it appears, and the story of a girl, who is being trained at a secret academy to restore the dividing line between dream and reality and so to protect everyone she loves.

Then she hears the same words in a song by a singer called Nico and she realises she simply has to meet him. But Nico is arrogant and unapproachable and Nico’s manager has plans of his own with the young man.

Henry, a boy from the USA, is faced with the most boring summer holidays of his life – he’s off to Bayreuth with his father. Nothing could be worse. But then everything changes when they order pizza. Instead of pizza, Henry finds a bad-tempered giant at the door. Very soon, Henry is lying prostrate before Odin, yes, before the ruler of the Norse gods himself. Odin has a bone to pick with his old enemy, Alberich the dwarf, and it seems Henry could come in very useful for that. Before he knows what has happened, Henry is racing through world history with Odin’s daughter, Hilda. The first book in a new series, very funny and featuring a smart hero.
