By (author): Sarah Moore Fitzgerald

What doesn''t kill you makes you ... stronger? A poignant and gripping story about the power of fear, the resilience of love and the magic of food - from bestselling Waterstones Children''s Book Prize and Specsavers Children''s Book of the Year shortlisted author Sarah Moore Fitzgerald.

Gripping, with an incredible twist that you simply won''t see coming - Louise O''Neill

A Strange Kind of Brave is all kinds of wonderful. I was right there on every page, laughing, crying and unable to put it down - the twist is glorious! Be warned! If you start this book in bed, you''re in for a sleepless night - Kit de Waal

Jake McCormack is the villain of Clanfedden. He''s just killed a boy - deliberately run him over with his truck, on the bridge, in front of everyone. And he knows he''ll get away with it.

Luca, 14, is the new boy in town. He''s looking for a fresh start after a terrible thing that happened at his old school.

Allie is honest and kind and Luca knows they''re going to be friends.

Allie has lived in Clanfedden all her life and these should be happy days - Luca is the best thing to have happened in years.
