16th April 2020

Looking for fantastically original middle grade stories that are impossible to put down? From the award-winning author, Geraldine McCaughrean, The Middle of Nowhere and Where the World Ends are beautiful stories of courage and resilience, with fascinating historical twists that bring past times and faraway settings to life.

The Middle of Nowhere

When her mother dies from a snake bite, Comity's life in the Australian outback changes forever. Now the only person Comity can count on is her friend, Fred, the Aboriginal yard boy. But when her father's new assistant, the cruel and sadistic Quartz Hogg, arrives he sets his bloodthirsty sights on Fred. Comity has no choice but to find a way to stop him... before things spiral dangerously out of control.

Where the World Ends

Every summer Quill and his friends are put ashore on a remote sea stac to hunt birds. But this summer, no one arrives to take them home. Surely nothing but the end of the world can explain why they've been abandoned – cold, starving and clinging to life, in the grip of a murderous ocean. How will they survive?
