Young adult science fiction/aliens
[For readers aged 14+]
Janet Beckett is a science scholarship girl who believes there’s a rational explanation for all paranormal phenomena.
There is, if you happen to meet a know-it-all hippie pixie who lives in a dimensional transcendental toadstool.
Samantha Hamilton-Brown thinks she is 1960’s Queen of the Universe and can do as she pleases in her role as new head girl of Toffdene boarding school.
She can, until aliens cut her reign short and screw with the minds of almost every student and teacher in the establishment.
Joe Buckell is leader of a delinquent mod gang and fancies getting his end away with some hoity-toity daughters of the élite.
He does, but not in the way he hopes.
WHEN DESICCATION THREATENS, YOU’LL DO ANYTHING TO SURVIVE…
EXTRACTS FROM REVIEWS
“Quirky, fun and weird in an excellent fashion! …In movie terms, if you were to blend that feel with a sinister, twisted and creepy, but at the same time psychedelic and trippy version of Alice in Wonderland, then you’d be half way there. At times I felt I was myself being caught up in some sort of hallucinogenic dream”.
“I was a huge fan of Enid Blyton’s Malory Towers series when I was a little girl and this book has made me nostalgic enough to read them all over again. The tone and language of this book is very similar to the old boarding school novels, when girls go for walks through meadows to picnic on boiled eggs and sardines. It just happens that this boarding school includes mind-altering aliens and some very odd sexual tendencies (ok, maybe not that odd. We’ve all heard the rumours)”.
“The plot weaves some interesting elements, yes from science fiction, but there are nuances of fantasy, thriller, teenagerisms, and a glimmer or two of erotic undertones that were unexpected and refreshing. …Desiccation is indeed very British, and a reminder that not all science fiction has to be about star ships, lasers and one dimensional bad guys who want to kill everything for a random clichéd reason”.

[For readers aged 9+]
Noah Padgett’s stepmother wants him out of her life, along with his nuisance puppy Bluebell. Her wish comes true, after Noah clicks on a rogue computer link and vanishes.
Mad entrepreneur Monsieur Percival Poodle is the self-appointed ruler of Zyx, a dimension with Canis sapiens as its main species. Percival collects alien specimens, and two of them have just arrived: a primitive four-legged chocolate Labrador and a human boy.
Noah wakes up in a high security hospital for insane Canis sapiens, without apparent means of escape or any idea where Bluebell has gone. He soon discovers the psychiatrists are nuttier than their patients and that nobody in charge will give him a straight answer. However, they’ve underestimated his ability to bond with his fellow inmates and his determination to achieve the impossible…
