Micah's Super Vlog: The Big Fail

By Andy McGuire and Girish Manuel

  • Paperback
  • £5.99

Micah's Super Vlog, JellyTelly's popular, animated web show, is now a fun and relatable middle-grade series to tackle the challenges kids face, with lessons in faith and character. In THE BIG FAIL, Micah and friends learn the importance of honesty.

When deciding whether to keep up the lie of his "A paper," will Micah admit his mistakes or risk losing his friends?

Based on the popular JellyTelly show, Micah's Super Vlog, book two in this series finds Micah wrestling with a decision facing every kid his age: to study or play video games? Micah chooses to ditch his responsibility, so it's no surprise when the result is a big . . . F. Seeing that his friends did well on the same test, Micah is too ashamed to show his grade before changing the F to an A with a marker. Although he knows it's wrong, Micah feels the need to keep up the façade . . . which only leads to more lying. Will Micah continue to be dishonest, or admit his mistakes before things spin so far out of control that he loses his friends?

The Boy and Girl Who Broke The World

Amy Reed
Authors:
Amy Reed

Billy Sloat and Lydia Lemon don't have much in common, unless you count growing up on the same (wrong) side of the tracks, the lack of a mother, and a persistent loneliness that has inspired creative coping mechanisms.When the lives of these two loners are thrust together, Lydia's cynicism is met with Billy's sincere optimism, and both begin to question their own outlook on life. On top of that, weird happenings including an impossible tornado and an all-consuming fog are cropping up around them - maybe even because of them. With a unique mix of raw emotion, humor, and heart, the surreal plotline pulls readers through an epic exploration of how caring for others makes us vulnerable - and how utterly pointless life would be if we didn't.
