Welcome to ‘50sVille: The town you will absolutely love, or else… Imagine a town where the people perpetually live in the 1950s, a place where time has all but stopped and where everyone loves his family, job, and life. In this strange place, only a select few people ever leave the city limits and even then, they leave reluctantly. This is what fifteen and a half year old Benjamin Granault faces as, through a string of amazing events, he finds himself living in a town where he can never talk about modern technology or current events, a place where being an outsider can cost a person his life and being part of the community may very well cost more. Follow the adventures of Benjamin Granault in ‘50sVille, the strangest town Indiana has ever been unaware of. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Lucas Schuneman.

High adventure from a master storyteller about one boy´s attempt to fend for himself among cruel orphan masters, corrupt magistrates, and conniving thieves. In the seaside town of Melcombe Regis, England, 1724, Oliver Cromwell Pitts wakes to find his father missing and his house flooded by a recent storm. He´s alone in his ruined home, with no money and no food. Oliver´s father has left behind a barely legible waterlogged note: he´s gone to London, where Oliver´s sister, Charity, is in trouble. Exploring damage to the town in the storm´s aftermath, Oliver discovers a shipwreck on the beach. Removing anything from a wrecked ship is a hanging offense, but Oliver finds money that could save him, and he can´t resist the temptation to take it. When his crime is discovered, Oliver flees, following the trail of his father and sister. The journey is full of thieves, adventurers, and treachery - and London might be the most dangerous place of all. In the tradition of his Newbery Honor book The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle, Avi mixes high adventure and short chapters with a vivid historical setting featuring a cast of highwaymen, pickpockets, and villainous criminal masterminds. 1.

´Genuinely unputdownable books are rare in my experience. This is one. A brilliant, original comedy´ Daily Mail ´I loved The Adults! Funny, dry and beautifully observed. Highly recommended for anyone whose perfect Christmases never quite go according to plan!´ Gill Sims, #1 bestselling author of Why Mummy Drinks and Why Mummy Swears MEET THE ADULTS... Claire and Matt are divorced but decide what´s best for their daughter Scarlett is to have a ´normal´ family Christmas with them all together. Claire brings her new boyfriend Patrick, a seemingly eligible Iron-Man-in-Waiting. Matt brings the new love of his life Alex, funny, smart, and extremely patient. Scarlett, their daughter, brings her imaginary friend Posey. He´s a rabbit. Together the five (or six?) of them grit their teeth over Organized Fun activities, drinking a little too much after bed-time, oversharing classified secrets about their pasts and, before they know it, their holiday is a powder keg that ends - where this story starts - with a tearful, frightened, call to the police... But what happened? They said they´d all be adults about this... ´Such a breath of fresh air! Witty, intensely human and (dare I say it) relatable ... The perfect comedy of errors´ Katie Khan ´The Adults is my top read of 2018 so far. Absolutely hilarious ...

I loved it´ Charlotte Duckworth ´Razor-sharp comedy - barbed and brilliant. The characters are totally convincing ... Sparky, heart-felt and fantastically fun, this is a fabulous debut´ Sunday Mirror
