|Eta Carinae by Brian d'Eon|
n this humorous apocalyptic comedy, Australian bureaucrat, James Cook, is sent to Ayer’s Rock in the Outback to sort out what seems to be a labor dispute. There, he discovers that The National Park and the local airport have been shut down by the aboriginal community. Aided by the enticing anthropologist, Pam, and the local elder, Billy, James goes on walkabout to Kata Djuta, hoping to gain insight into the celestial event the elders and shamans say is about to take place.
Eta Carinae, has suddenly begun to brighten in the sky and most astronomers think it’s a supernova. The elders think it’s something even more, and James has the not-so-unwelcome suspicion that everything he’s ever known is about to change forever.

You're dead. While your body has gone cold, your mind is installed onto a computer. You are immortal, providing the power stays on. But are you really you?

|Star Surfer by Lizz Lund|
Daydreaming is dangerous.
Especially if you’re Thaddeus McPhee—his fantasies not only doom him to summer school (complete with repeat bullies) they also land him in hostile territory: think alien wars. Seriously.
As for high school: he’s got a weird family birthmark on his forehead that's hard to hide, he’s flunking out, and everyone else has a special talent except him—unless snoozing in class counts. Especially his friend Nick: he’s an ace student and super focused on being a famous chef. This comparison—which his parents constantly remind him about—only highlight Tad’s under-achiever skills.
That is, until Tad discovers his own secret powers.
