The things that matter most

Author: Gabbie Stroud

Publisher: Allen & Unwin

The staff of St Margaret’s Primary School are hanging by a thread. There’s serious litigation pending, the school is due for registration, and a powerful parent named Janet Bellevue has a lot to say about everything. As teachers, they’re trying to remain professional; as people, they’re unravelling fast.

A moving and compelling novel about teachers and their students by the acclaimed author of the bestselling books Teacher and Dear Parents.

Hamlet is Not OK

Author R A Spratt

Publisher: Penguin

Funny, shocking and brilliant – from bestselling author R A Spratt, a whip-smart take on Shakespearean moral dilemmas.

Selby hates homework. She would rather watch daytime television – anything to escape the tedium of school, her parents’ bookshop and small-town busybodies.

So Selby didn’t plan to read Hamlet. And she certainly never planned to meet him.
