When at last a stranger knocks at his door, the boy senses that his days of isolation might be over. But by what authority does this man keep the meticulous records he carries? What is the purpose behind his questions? Is he friend? Enemy? Or something else altogether?Filled with beauty, terror, and strangeness, This Census-Taker is a poignant and riveting exploration of memory and identity.

              Eel has troubles of his own: As an orphan and a mudlark, he spends his days in the filthy River Thames, searching for bits of things to sell. He's being hunted by Fisheye Bill Tyler, and a nastier man never walked the streets of London. And he's got a secret that costs him four p...recious shillings a week to keep safe. But even for Eel, things aren't so bad until that fateful August day in 1854--the day the Great Trouble begins. Mr. Griggs, the tailor, is the first to get sick. Soon it's clear that the deadly cholera--the blue death --has come to Broad Street. Everyone believes that cholera is spread through poisonous air. But one man, Dr. John Snow, has a different theory. As the epidemic surges, it's up to Eel and his best friend Florrie to gather evidence to prove Dr. Snow's theory--that cholera is spread through water --before the entire neighborhood is wiped out.

              One choice. Two possible timelines. And a world hanging in the balance. It's the summer of 1986 and reluctant prodigy Nick Hayes is a student at Cambridge University, working with world-renowned mathematician Professor Halligan. He just wants to be a regular student, but regular ...isn't really an option for a boy-genius cancer survivor who's already dabbled in time travel. When he crosses paths with a mysterious yet curiously familiar girl, Nick discovers that creases have appeared in the fabric of time, and that he is at the centre of the disruption. Only Nick can resolve this time paradox before the damage becomes catastrophic for both him and the future of the world. Time is running out--literally. Wrapped up with him in this potentially apocalyptic scenario are his ex-girlfriend, Mia, and fellow student Helen. Facing the world-ending chaos of a split in time, Nick must act fast and make the choice of a lifetime--or lifetimes. Game on.

              Ready Player One meets Stranger Things in this thrilling new novel by bestselling author Mark Lawrence. In January 1986, fifteen-year-old boy-genius Nick Hayes discovers he's dying. And it isn't even the strangest thing to happen to him that week. Nick and his Dungeons & Dragons-...playing friends are used to living in their imaginations. But when a new girl, Mia, joins the group and reality becomes weirder than the fantasy world they visit in their weekly games, none of them are prepared for what comes next. A strange-yet curiously familiar-man is following Nick, with abilities that just shouldn't exist. And this man bears a cryptic message: Mia's in grave danger, though she doesn't know it yet. She needs Nick's help-now. He finds himself in a race against time to unravel an impossible mystery and save the girl. And all that stands in his way is a probably terminal disease, a knife-wielding maniac and the laws of physics. Challenge accepted.

              Sometimes being wrong is the right answer. Nick Hayes's genius is in wringing out the universe's secrets. It's a talent that's allowed him to carve paths through time. But the worst part is that he knows how his story will end. He's seen it with his own eyes. And every year that ...passes, every breakthrough he makes, brings him a step closer. Mia's accident is waiting for them both in 2011. If it happens then he's out of choices. Then a chance 1992 discovery reveals that this seeker of truth has been lying to himself. But why? It's a question that haunts him for years. A straw he clings to as his long-awaited fate draws near. Time travel turns out not to be the biggest problem Nick has to work on. He needs to find out how he can stay on his path but change the destination. Failure has never been an option, and neither has survival. But Nick's hoping to roll the dice one more time. And this new truth begins with a lie.

              Would you know if someone was watching you? In the dark days since the sudden death of her surgeon husband, Julia's main worry has always been Tash. Her student daughter was broken-she worshipped her father. But six months on, Julia thinks the light is returning. She is about to ...find out that she's wrong. When she saves the life of a boy who's been hanging around her beach cottage, the questions start. All she has to go on is the butterfly tattoo on his wrist, but who is he? What was he doing there? And why was her late husband's watch in his bag? Julia wants to believe it's a casual theft, but an ominous arrival in the post confirms her suspicion that there is more than meets the eye. As Tash remembers a string of strange incidents she had previously brushed off, Julia realises they are both being watched. Someone's been toying with them, trying to frighten them, but why? Determined to protect her daughter, Julia races to discover the boy's identity. But what she doesn't realise is that the truth is right in front of her. Will she see it before it's too late?

              Elliot has lived his first thirteen years confined to his home, incapacitated by fear. Now he's out of pills, snow is falling, and his only safe person is missing. A terrifying thriller from Carnegie Medalist Kevin Brooks. From the moment of his birth, Elliot's life has been gove...rned by fear of almost everything, even of his own fear -- a beast that holds him prisoner in his room. The beast is kept at bay, though not eliminated, with a daily regimen of pills. But on Christmas Eve, a mix-up at the pharmacy threatens to unleash the beast full force, and his mother must venture out in a raging snowstorm to a store that should be only minutes away. Hours later, when she still hasn't returned, Elliot sees no choice but to push through his terror, leave the house, and hunt for her. What happens if the last of his medication wears off and the beast starts scratching at the doors of his mind? Everyone has a breaking point -- will Elliot come to his? With plot twists and turns that keep readers on the edge of their seats, multi-award-winning author Kevin Brooks offers a high-suspense exploration of fear and what it means to truly be afraid.
