Fat Boy Swim, Paperback (August 2015)
Jimmy Kelly is fat. If any of his classmates bothered to talk to him, instead of slagging him off, they'd find he was just as clued up as they were on films, on books, on telly, even on sport. But he wouldn't tell them that his secret talent is cooking. But Jimmy has another secret that he doesn't know yet. A secret that will change him forever.
I See You Baby, Paperback (May 2015)
A dual-narrative drama with a touch of romance. Sally and Keith are both fed up with being themselves. When fate intervenes and offers them each a chance to be someone else for a weekend at a music festival, there's no telling how it'll turn out... Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic readers aged 12+
