Kid normal
Eleven year old Murph's mum has been unable to find permanent work, so the family has had to move many times, not only homes but towns and schools and Murph has just about given up on staying put in one place long enough to make and retain friends. When all the schools in this latest town are full Murph and his mum have an even bigger problem until by pure chance they stumble upon a school hidden behind many corners and backstreets. Murph is accepted and there begins an education like nothing Murph has experienced before. It appears that somehow Murphy has landed in a school aimed at finding and training super heroes, with each of the students having some sort of magical capability, although some appear to have little use such as a boy who can make his head swell like a balloon or a girl who can make thunderstorms. Can these skills, along with Murph who has none, really save the day?

Knight in screaming armor, The
A "Give Yourself Goosebumps" story It Was a Knight to Dismember... Your cousins, Kip and Abbey, have come to visit you from jolly old England -- and guess what they brought with them? Two huge crates, each containing a suit of armor and a curse. But it doesn't matter, 'cause you're "dying" to see what's inside. If you open the crate marked "Evil Knight," you will be hypnotized by the knight's sparkling medallion and will have to face an ugly sorceress. If you open the "Good Knight" crate, you'll discover a room full of mannequin heads that talk. Before you know it, you've lost your head. Can you pull yourself together before time runs out? The choice is yours in this scary GOOSEBUMPS adventure that's packed with over 20 super-spooky endings!

Kokoda: Teen edition
Conditions on the track were hellish - rain was constant, the terrain close to impassable, food and ammunition supplies were practically non-existent and the men constantly battled malaria and dysentery, as well as the enemy. Kokoda was a defining battle for Australia, in which a small force of young, ill-equipped Australians engaged a highly experienced and hitherto unstoppable Japanese force on a narrow, precarious jungle track - and defeated them.
