In stock now at the Younger Sun is this brilliant novel for young adults.
Bea is new to town and, unlike in all the other new-girl-in-town books you've read, she's welcomed warmly into a large group of girls. But Bea is fascinated by Jonah, a sullen and weird guy ostracised by the rest of the school that everyone calls Ghost Boy.
He's reluctant to let her get close to him, but they bond over a late-night talk-back radio show full of old timers and strange, strange folk and their friendship is like no others.
Their relationship - although not a romantic relationship - is cemented and strengthened when Jonah discovers that someone from his past might not be dead after all and he needs Bea's help.
This is a magnificent first novel, something like Jerry Spinelli's amazing Stargirl or John Green's spectacular Paper Towns.
