Cooper's dead. But what's a nerd to do when Heaven doesn't believe in technology, and hell's hotter than an overclocked CPU? Panicking and running away back to Earth seems a perfectly logical reaction, especially since his beloved computer hasn't come with him. Of course, what to do then is a bit of a puzzle that only Linda can solve. This is a very short book - novelette length - around 10 000 words or 40 (print) pages. Warning: Contains frequent foul language, adult themes, nerd-speak and Aussie insults. Not suitable for children. Cooper says: 'I'm dead. 'This is sorta ####ing me off. 'I don't know what happened, though. One moment I was on my way to visit my girlfriend with a big bunch of flowers, and the next I saw a big bright light and a cloud and a crowd of dudes in dresses carrying harps. Holy ####, I thought, I'm dead! Then I thought - #####, that looks like a church choir, all low-tech and acoustic and stuff. That's not where I wanna be. Bet they don't have a single computer, or if they do it's like a 386 or something, all filled with dustbunnies. There's no way I'm getting stuck in a low-tech shiny place like that with acoustic music everywhere. That's a freaky version of hell. #### no. So I ran, or flew or something the #### away, and now I'm back home and I'm still dead. 'I think maybe my girlfriend killed me.' Linda says: 'Oh Lord, a few stubbies short of a sixpack as well as too dumb to go to heaven. This one's gonna be a barrel of fun. ' Krystal says: 'I can't believe the stupid little ######## thinks I did him in. Now I wish like #### that I had. What the #### is wrong with him? ####ing self-absorbed moron, can't believe he killed himself through arrant stupidity, so he's got to blame the only person who ever put up with him for more than five ####ing minutes.'

The Elementalists

'Debut author Sharp masterfully blends fantasy, teen drama, and a strong message of environmentalism into a white-hot narrative...Sharp also paints his fantasy elements...in tantalizing brush strokes.' -KIRKUS Rising sea levels, droughts, earthquakes, tornadoes. Far below the earth's crust, imprisoned in ancient slumber, the elemental powers of the land grow restless… Meanwhile, in small town Virginia, Chloe McClellan's first day of sophomore year was an epic fail. After she becomes the target of the fiery queen of the It-Girls in gym, she gains instant notoriety when she's struck by lightning. That's when things start to get weird. There are disconcerting gaps in her memory, and freaky weather seems to follow her everywhere. She comes to believe that either she's going insane, or her accident has awoken a terrifying creature from mythology, triggering the final countdown to the extinction of humankind. Chloe finds unlikely help from a trio of male classmates: the grounded captain of the football team, the flighty stoner with a secret, and the enigmatic transfer student who longs for the sea. All the while, she struggles with the growing realization that dragons exist, and she, and her friends, may be the only ones who can stop them. In the first book in the epic new Tipping Point Prophecy series, global dragon mythology is reimagined against a backdrop of ecological disaster, high school angst, and the power of the human spirit when working in accord with the elements. 'A cautionary modern tale about climate change and pollution. The realistic, adolescent dramas buffeting [the] clever protagonist...are just as well-crafted as the passages on Chinese mythology and five-clawed, flying beasts.' -SLATE Book Review

In this 'artfully crafted” (Publishers Weekly) companion to the bestselling The Misfits and Totally Joe, Addie Carle confronts labels, loss, and what it means to grow up. The Gang of Five is back in this third story from Paintbrush Falls. Addie Carle, the only girl in the group of friends is outspoken, opinionated, and sometimes...just a bit obnoxious. But as seventh grade progresses, Addie's not so sure anymore about who she is. It seems her tough exterior is just a little too tough and that doesn't help her deal with the turmoil she feels on the inside as she faces the pains of growing up. Told in elegant, accessible verse, ADDIE ON THE INSIDE gives readers a look at a strong, smart, and sensitive girl struggling with the box society wants to put her in. Addie confronts experiences many readers will relate to: the loss of a beloved pet, first heartbreak, teasing...but also, friendship, love, and a growing confidence in one's self. You Are Who They Say You Are They say in the seventh grade you are who they say you are, but how can that be true? How can I be a /Godzilla-girl /lezzie loser /know-it-all/ big-mouth /beanpole /string bean/ freaky tall/ fall-down /spaz attack /brainiac /maniac/ hopeless nerd /*bad word*/brown-nosing /teacher's pet/ showing off /just to get attention - oh, and did I mention: flat-chested... How can I be all that? It's too many things to be. How can I be all that and still be true to the real me while everyone is saying: This is who you are.
