When Haru Was Here

When Haru Was Here by Dustin Thao

After the devastating death of his best friend and his sister leaves home without even a note, Eric Ly finds himself alone in the world. Struggling to deal with reality, Eric invents imaginary scenarios in his head where everything is still okay. Until one of them comes to life – Haru Tanaka, the guy he briefly met last summer, the one he has been dreaming about.

In a magical turn of events, Eric suddenly has someone he can talk to – even if no one else can see him. For the first time since not getting into college, losing his best friend and sister, he has someone to connect with. Someone to make things right.

But the longer they spend together, Eric starts to question what’s real and what isn't. When this begins to interfere with his real-world relationships, Eric must finally confront his reality, even if it means losing Haru forever.

One Perfect Couple

One Perfect Couple by Ruth Ware

Five beautiful couples.

One deadly game.

Who will escape alive?

Lyla Santiago has spent months working on a research project that could be the key to getting a permanent job in her field.

So, she can’t really drop everything to go to a desert island with her actor boyfriend Nico to film One Perfect Couple, a new reality TV show that Nico is sure will lead to his big break – can she?

Two weeks later, Lyla finds herself boarding a boat to an isolated luxury resort in the Indian Ocean.

The rules of the game are simple. Ten strangers have to survive together on the island – and the last couple standing scoops the prize.

There will be sun, sea, laughs and plenty of flirting.

What could possibly go wrong?

But when a huge tropical storm cuts them off from everything, the group must band together.

As tensions run high and fresh water runs low, Lyla realises that someone is playing this game for real – and they'll stop at nothing to win.

Ten might have arrived, but who will survive to the end?
