He hides it in the forest near their house, thrilled by the anonymity it gives him. Anyone can leave Max a note – and soon, he gets one from the mysterious `E’.

I was born for this by Alice Oseman: For Angel life is about one thing: The Ark – a pop-rock trio of teen boys who are taking the world by storm.

Paper and hearts society by Lucy Powrie: Tabby is tired of trying to fit in. She doesn’t want to go to parties – in fact, she would much rather snuggle up on the sofa with her favourite book.

EVERYTHING – especially when making new friends brings out an AWKWARD BUZZING feeling all over her body. But Olivia, Cassie, Henry and Ed have something that makes Tabby come back.

I Cant wait for my pre-order to arrive.

As Tulip puts down her phone and heads for the hills, she finds she has both the courage and insight to take on each new challenge.
