Description - Now I Know & The Toll Bridge by Aidan Chambers

In "Now I Know" the body of a young man, crucified on a metal cross, is found dangling from a crane in a scrapyard and subsequently vanishes. Tom, an ambitious young police officer, thinks he's had a lucky break when he's put in charge of this bizarre murder investigation. Nik is doing research for a film about a contemporary life of Jesus. Their independent investigations ultimately bring them together in an unexpected climax. This is a thought-provoking book about faith, spiritual experiences and teenage love and relationships. In "The Toll Bridge", everyone seems to know best when it comes to Jan's future - but he's still working out for himself who he really is. He feels so hemmed in by the pressures of family and friends, he decides to leave home and live alone in the house on the toll bridge. While there, he meets Tess and Adam and their close bond of friendship develops into something which has devastating effects for them all.
