#Tumeke
#Tumeke
Plans for the Newtoun community's Waitangi Day celebrations are well under way: Monty and Pete `The Deadly Icedagger' plan a wrestling demo. Dreadflock needs to upskill her braiding technique. Constable Rutene is planning the biggest kapa haka event in suburban memory. Sauerkraut Burgers are gearing up for fierce battle with Carnivores Rule. And that's not the half of it . . .
In the boundary-riding tradition of the Annual project, Annual Ink's latest title, #Tumeke, brings you the lives, loves and larrikan spirit of an inner-city neighbourhood. The story is told through texts, tweets, Instagram posts, emails, fliers, posters, newspapers, letters, local radio and . . . the library noticeboard.
Stuffed with story, big personalities, surprising friendships and intrigue, this multimedia narrative brims with creativity and comedy, and everyday heartaches, too. Debut novelist Michael Petherick juggles a large cast and multiple story threads with panache, giving us a window on a vivid, big-hearted community. This innovative novel is for middle readers - and the rest of their families, too. It's a book for our times.

101 Pieces of Me
101 Pieces of Me
Written in 101 numbered parts, this story is set in the late 1920s against the backdrop of the early days of British cinema. By 1925, the rate of 24 frames per second had been established worldwide for silent films. So 101 frames - the "pieces" of the title - make about four seconds. Four seconds of film is enough for 16-year-old Sarah Freebody to become an object of fascination for a young producer who will not rest until he has secured her for his next project. Sarah becomes Clara Hope, acts in films, meets exciting people, falls in love and, in the end, has to decide whether a life in film is right for her.

A Mer-Tale
A Mer-Tale
Imagine you're a teenage mermaid who can transform between Mer and human form. How would you spend your time? All Thala wants to do is swim free, far beyond the boundaries of her family's protected waters. Instead, she's forced to stay within the confines of her Uncle's cliff top home. She struggles with life on land, battling her self-obsessed Uncle in any petty way she can. Isolated, bored and forbidden to delve into her family's bloody past, Thala feels like a prisoner and longs for change. So, when intriguing young Mermen from a rival pod reveal a hidden agenda and plan a risky journey, Thala dives straight in. Determined to find out what her Uncle's been keeping from her, it's not until she's face to face with her family's lifelong enemy that she realises she's in deep trouble and terrifyingly unfamiliar waters. A Mer-tale is a story about discovering your strengths, exposing secrets to the light of day and accepting the differences in others. Suitable for readers 12+ who enjoy strong, female characters taking the lead, A Mer-Tale includes a hint of romance, a touch of humour and plenty of undersea adventure.

But he unexpectedly lands a part-time job at Wonderland, a run-down amusement arcade on the seafront, where he gets to know the teenage misfits who work there.
