Three things happen: A truck collides with a bus. A plane lands in Dubai, one passenger short. There is a vicious dog fight.

April-May is back, and this time she's brought friends! April-May is back for another year at Trinity College, and she still hasn't changed her socks. Sebastian, aka Edward, aka the boy with the lime-green eyes, is still drop-dead gorgeous and totally bad news. But then Fatty turns up. A giant of a boy who eats stew sandwiches and cries when no one's looking. And he's best friends with Sebastian. Awkward. Juggling the evil teacher Mrs Ho as her new live-in mom, along with a new brother (the devious Sam Ho), and a house with half a roof, April-May's life is as much of a mess as the crummy extension Fluffy is building out back. Before she knows it April-May is in an all-night dance-off and she's adopted a dog called Alistair. The less said about him the better. No wonder April-May's in counselling. It's a shame that she's the one giving all the guidance. 100 DAYS OF APRIL-MAY is the hilarious one-eyebrow-raised sequel to A MONTH WITH APRIL-MAY as she finds love, loses a dog and wins the World Cup.

April-May loves boys with green eyes, reading at the back of class and wearing non-regulation socks. April-May hates stuck up rich kids and two-minute noodles. Life at her new school would have been fine if Mrs Ho, the English teacher hadn't decided that April May was a no-good, trouble-maker, bursary-kid. April-May decides that Mrs Ho has to go. Then April-May meets the drop-dead gorgeous Sebastian, befriends the total suck up mouth-breather Melly and things get a little more complicated. A MONTH WITH APRIL-MAY is a one-eyebrow-raised account of a teenager's trials and tribulations as she navigates a new school, a new family situation and a whole new way of life.
Romance is what happens when you're busy doing something else Beatrice has got a deadbeat mum, an addiction to online messaging and an aversion to the sun. If she could stay inside all summer she most absolutely would. Except she's being shipped off to stay with her 'Grummer' - a grandmother she barely knows - while her mum has another go at rehab. If Beatrice is going to have any chance of having some peace she will need to distract Grummer with a husband. Unfortunately there aren't many eligible bachelors hanging around this cranky old dorp. Her plan is simple: identify the target, establish contact and ensure eternal love. But all does not go to plan for control-freak Beat. Suddenly she finds herself ditching the factor 50 for freckles from swimming in the reservoir; her cucumber and tea-only diet is overtaken by peanut butter sandwiches, and the very important 'rely on no-one' policy has to make room for Toffie; a boy with a bike, a shock of red hair and a love for the natural fauna of South Africa. Beat always knew that love was found in unexpected places. She just never thought that it might find her.
Cornelia Button and the Globe of Gamagion is a story about three children living in Johannesburg. Cornelia's dream is to be a famous singer, but she can't sing for toffee. Her sister Maude is furious about the birth of her baby brother and wants to be a gypsy princess so that she can cast spells and make him disappear. And their friend Zwelabo Maluleke wants to be a brave hero like his mysterious, absent father. Cornelia's Aunty Hilda tells her that she can be anything she wants to be if she can imagine it. The secret to realising their dreams is their father's globe, which has special qualities. So the children spin Mr Button's globe which opens the doorway to the Kingdom of Gamagion. Everything is perfect until Gamagion comes under attack from the Master of Evil, Darko Drogbarl. Cornelia is tasked by the King of Gamagion to find the weapon to destroy this monster and bring peace to the divided Kingdom.
To outsiders, St Patrick's High School in Johannesburg is a model of excellence, producing well-balanced young adults equipped to claim their inheritance as the new leaders of the fledgling democracy. But behind this façade lies a dark secret: the school is dominated by 'Ess Club', a powerful group of senior students who have adopted the values of the business and political elite of a post-Mandela South Africa – pride and its six deadly offspring: greed, lust, wrath, gluttony, envy, and sloth. Bright, privileged and utterly ruthless, they manipulate the school for their own gain, their antics invisible behind the polished exterior of the exclusive institution.
It is 2007 and senior member Mammuso Mazibuko is hot favourite to become the next chairman of Ess Club. Life could not be better. But when her naive younger brother Jacob attracts the attention of a brutish fellow Club member, Mammuso is drawn into a sinister and increasingly desperate battle of wits to protect him.
With wonderfully drawn characters and a riveting plot, Bulbring paints an extraordinary and often chilling portrait of the life of the young elite in Johannesburg today.
