            After suffering a great deal of loss in her life in such a short time, Sarah Delany decided to deal with her grief by putting it down on paper. These pages slowly turned into a story. 'Don't Think. Just Breathe' is her debut young adult novel and is the first book in the TNT tril...ogy. Tamsyn: Have you ever looked someone in the eye with a fake smile plastered on your perfectly put together face while your soul is screaming on the inside for help? If not, consider yourself lucky. If you have then you know how I feel. This is me on a daily basis. Trapped in the dark and tortured by nameless shadows is the place where I reside. Consumed by grief in the worst possible way. I can't see an escape through this never ending suffering. No one can hear my silent screams or see the pain I desperately try to hide from the world. Until him. Why can he see what no one else can? Can he save me before I'm completely lost? Tate: Have you ever let someone down so badly that there's no turning back? What you broke is smashed into a million pieces and utterly beyond repair. The guilt eats away at you from the inside out and the more you hide it, the worse it becomes. My cracks are starting to show and I fear I will completely shatter one day. On a nightly run to escape the darkness tormenting me, I see her. A broken mystery who I fiercely need to protect. Even if it means protecting her from herself. Do I have the strength and the will to save her? Tate and Tamsyn have a chance encounter starting them on a heartbreaking journey together through grief, loss and friendship. Can they save each other from what life throws at them? More importantly, can they save themselves?

            Surviving school with one eye open. Ross Maloy just wants to be a normal seventh grader. He does not want to lose his hair, or wear a weird hat, or deal with the kids at school who don't know what to say to 'the cancer kid'. But with a sudden and horrifying diagnosis of a rare ey...e cancer, blending in is off the table. Based on Rob Harrell's real-life experiences, and filled with his cartoons and illustrations, this very personal and poignant novel is an unforgettable, hilarious and uplifting story of survival, and of finding music, magic and laughter in all of life's weirdness. EARLY PRAISE FOR WINK: 'Wink is the story of a boy's survival that is both deeply personal and wildly funny. It's fun, it's important, and it's got songs! Rock on, Rob Harrell! Batpig forever!' - Max Brallier, New York Times bestselling author of Last Kids on Earth 'I loved Wink! Heartbreakingly funny, this book is proof that laughter is the best form of medicine. A smart, likable story that's full of heart.' - Meg Cabot, author of The Princess Diaries 'Wink has all the right elements: humour, heart, and a Batpig. A deeply personal and moving story, it will (pun alert) rock you to the core.' - Terri Libenson, award-winning comics creator and author of the bestselling Invisible Emmie 'With a cast of characters that feel both deeply human and fully seen, this book has shot onto my list of all-time favourite books. Simply superb!' - Ingrid Law, author of Newbery Honor Book Savvy 'Funny, moving, and ultimately triumphant, Wink is a powerful story of everyday resilience, and of the different types of family that unexpectedly sprout up in the wake of tragedy.' - M.A. Larson, author of Pennyroyal Academy
