Every Day is David Levithan’s amazing new book, out in NZ and Australia this month from Text Publishing. I love David’s books and Every Day sounds really interesting and completely different. I can’t wait to lose myself in the story.

The Bridge is the brilliant new dystopian thriller by New Zealand author, Jane Higgins. It is the very deserving winner of the 2010 Text Prize for Young Adult and Children’s Writing. I’m currently in the middle of it and don’t want to put it down. My review will be posted later this week.
In the mean time, here’s the blurb:
The City is divided. The bridges gated. In Southside, the hostiles live in squalor and desperation, waiting for a chance to overrun the residents of Cityside.
Nik is still in high school but destined for a great career with the Internal Security and Intelligence Services, the brains behind the war. But when ISIS comes recruiting, everyone is shocked when he isn’t chosen. There must be an explanation, but no one will talk about it. Then the school is bombed and the hostiles take the bridges. Buildings are burning, kids are dead, and the hostiles have kidnapped Sol. Now ISIS is hunting for Nik.
But Nik is on the run, with Sol’s sister Fyffe and ISIS hot on their trail. They cross the bridge in search of Sol, and Nik finds answers to questions he’d never dared to ask.
