"Ink"  by Alice Broadway

June 23rd 2pm

  

Every action, every deed, every significant moment is tattooed on your skin for ever. When Leora's father dies, she is determined to see her father remembered forever. She knows he deserves to have all his tattoos removed and made into a Skin Book to stand as a record of his good life. But when she discovers that his ink has been edited and his book is incomplete, she wonders whether she ever knew him at all.

"On a scale of 1 to 10" by Ceylan Scott

Tamar is admitted to Lime Grove, a psychiatric ward for teenagers, where the psychologists ask her endless questions. How did the self-harming start? Will you tell us what happened? How do you feel, on a scale of one to ten? But there’s one question Tamar can’t – won’t – answer: What happened to her friend Iris?

 

A uniquely powerful, devastating novel of friendship, fragility and forgiveness.
