The Chaos Of Now by Erin Lange

The Blurb On The Back:

When Jordan Bishop sets himself on fire at school he triggered a nationwide crackdown on internet bullying.  New laws empower teachers to become cyber snoops.

But this is not what Jordan would have wanted.

For Eli Bennett, too, the laws put fundamental freedoms at risk.  So he joined a group of guerrilla hackers who are out to get justice for Jordan, Jordan-style.

What starts as a bit of fun soon spirals out of control.

Fish Boy by Chloe Daykin

The Blurb On The Back:

People call me Fish Boy. My skin goes up and down like the waves. My mind goes in and out like the sea. They say I’ve always got my mouth open, but what’s wrong with that? 

Billy is obsessed with swimming in the sea, which is where he goes to wash his problems far, far away. Thanks to his mum’s mystery illness, his dad has ben forced to work extra hours to make ends meet, so Billy is often left to his own devices. Meanwhile at school, bullies mercilessly seize on Billy’s ‘otherness’ and make his life as miserable as possible – but then new boy Patrick Green, with “fingers like steel, strength of a bear” joins Billy’s class. And a mackerel swims up to Billy’s face, blows bubbles into his Vista Clear Mask goggles and says: Fish Boy.

And Billy’s whole world changes.
