Ruined - Amy Tintera
Call Number: F TIN
ISBN: 9781760290641
Publication Date: 2016
Emelina Flores has nothing. Her home in Ruina has been ravaged by war; her parents were killed and her sister was kidnapped. Even though Em is only a useless Ruined, completely lacking any magic, she is determined to get revenge. Her plan is simple: She will infiltrate the enemy's kingdom, posing as the crown prince's betrothed. She will lead an ambush. She will kill the king and everyone he holds dear, including his son.

My Best Friend is a Goddess - Tara Eglington
Call Number: F EGL
ISBN: 9780732299903
Publication Date: 2016
Emily has been friends with Adriana since year one, way back when Adriana had a huge gap between her teeth and was super skinny. Emily wasn't any less awkward looking, but the girls are the best of friends and that is the way it has always been. When Adriana's mother dies, very suddenly, everything changes. Adriana's father accepts a job in Borneo and the girls spend Year 10 apart. Despite the rubbish Internet connection (on Adriana's side of things) the girls manage to stay in touch. When Adriana returns home she has gone from awkward to AMAZING and turned into a goddess! But the saving grace is that Adriana is no different on the inside. She's still the same best friend Emily knows and loves, and they're certainly not going to lose their friendship over the fact that Adriana has lucked out genetically.

Kokoda - Peter Fitzsimons
Call Number: 940.5 FIT
ISBN: 9780734417435
Publication Date: 2016
For Australians, Kokoda is the iconic battle of World War II, yet few people know just what happened, and just what our troops achieved. Conditions on the track were hellish -- rain was constant, the terrain close to inhospitable, food and ammunition supplies were practically non-existent and the men constantly battled malaria and dysentery, as well as the Japanese. Kokoda was a defining battle for Australia -- a small force of young, ill-equipped Australians engaged a highly experienced and hitherto unstoppable Japanese force on a narrow, precarious jungle track, and defeated them.
