              I'm not on social media, but everyone knows all about my life - from birth - thanks to Mum's Instagram, The Chronicles of Vee. It used to be a bit of fun, but when we got to 100,000 followers, Mum's started to take it way too seriously. My mission? Stop my mum posting everything ...about my life. How? 1. Become Anti-Vee and make my life unfollowable. 2. Make Mum's life more exciting than mine so she posts stuff about herself instead. Easy, right? That is, until Anti-Vee becomes more popular than the real Vee. Can I ever make Mum cool enough to start her own Instagram or am I doomed to have everyone following me forever?!

              Stuff Happens is an important new series for boys about everyday challenges. Created by Susannah McFarlane, the series editor, the series is written by established authors Tony Wilson, Andrew Daddo, Philip Gwynne, Will Kostakis, Oliver Phommavanh, Scot Gardner, Justin D'Ath, Jame...s Roy, Pat Flynn and Alex McDiarmid. Each book features a different character and follows them as they overcome a particular everyday challenge. It explores those everyday struggles in life that boys can sometimes be reluctant to express- quarrels with mates, a bad day at school, fear of disappointing mum and dad, rejection and not fitting in. Stuff Happens. Real-life stories for boys. Suitable for beginner and newly confident readers. Stuff happens sometimes. Everyday stuff. At school, at home, with sport, with mates. For Ethan it happened when he thought his best friend didn't like him anymore. Ethan is not just bookish - he's book-obsessed, possibly the only boy with a mother begging him to put a book down so he can make friends. Ethan doesn't make friends so easily so he when he does make friends with Trent (they bond over a dinosaur book), Ethan is chuffed and his mum is thrilled. But then Trent discovers downball and Ethan thinks he's lost his best friend, his only friend . . . Praise for Stuff Happens 'Stories about boys, aimed at boys and containing real-life stories of their school and home life are rare. Even rarer are those that have readily identifiable characters and situations, and engage, amuse and inform. But here they are.' 'An exciting new series written specifically for boys aged from seven to eleven . . . great additions for school libraries and for engaging reluctant boy readers. Outstanding!' Read Plus 'The fantastic Stuff Happens series.' reviewZOO 'I love a book that talks in a kid's voice. It makes us feel important and special. The thing I like the most about these books are that they tell different perspectives of everyday things in life.' Mr 10 - Readingtree.com.a

              Hi, I'm Connor and I'm a nerd. I thought I knew all there was to being one. But there are better nerds out there. Super nerds. Hyper nerds. Super, hyper nerds. I thought all nerds were smart. But that's not true, because suddenly I don't feel so bright anymore . . . Our favourite... character from Con-nerd returns in Super Con-nerd, where he finally makes it into a selective high school. If he thought the competition was intense to get into a selective school, it's tougher on the inside. Connor feels like everybody else is smarter than him and is trying to play catch up with the other super nerds, like Andrew Thompson who is top of his class. Connor's mum has loosened up and lets Connor draw his comics like Fireproof Knights, as long as his grades are good. Luckily, there's no report cards after the first week of school...
