The morning after Hurricane Leo rips through the town of Canaan, residents awaken to widespread destruction -- power outages, downed branches, uprooted trees, broken windows and damaged roofs. Four eighth-grade friends -- Evan, Jason, Mitchell, and CJ -- meet to explore the devastation. The tight-knit group is dismayed to find that Evan has brought along a stray -- Ricky, who is new to their town and school, and doesn't have any friends yet. Ricky is the one to find the strange trap door that's appeared in the middle of the woods -- the door to an old bomb shelter, unearthed by the hurricane. Inside, the boys find a completely intact underground lair, complete with electricity, food, and entertainment (in the form of videocassettes). The boys vow to keep the place's existence to themselves. Things soon get tense. Some bad locals keep snooping around. And what started out as a fun place to escape soon becomes a serious refuge for one of the kids who is trying to avoid an abusive home situation. In order to save the shelter, the friends must keep its secret... and in order to save themselves, they're going to have to share their individual secrets, and build the safest place they can.

Two classic Gordon Korman titles in one -- perfect for the sports fanatic! These two favourite novels come together in one paperback edition: The Chicken Doesn't Skate What do a scientist, a screenwriter, and a hockey team all have in common? A chicken! Milo's trying to do a project on the food chain, where he charts the growth of a baby chick, and plans to serve his specimen to the judges at the science fair. Only, his classmates have other ideas for the chicken. They claim that the chick's a good-luck charm, a friend and even the hockey team's new mascot! The Toilet Paper Tigers Corey Johnson never dreamed Little League could be so humiliating. But that was before he joined the Feather Soft Tigers. It's bad enough that the team uniforms have pictures of toilet paper on them -- thanks to their sponsor. But with a catcher who's afraid of the ball, a right fielder who falls asleep during the games and a coach who knows zero about baseball, it looks like the Tigers are going straight down the toilet!

Link, Michael, and Dana live in a quiet town. But it's woken up very quickly when someone sneaks into school and vandalizes it with a swastika. Nobody can believe it. How could such a symbol of hate end up in the middle of their school? Who would do such a thing? The mystery deepens as more swastikas begin to appear. Some students decide to fight back and start a project to bring people together instead of dividing them further. The closer Link, Michael, and Dana get to the truth, the more there is to face-not just the crimes of the present, but the crimes of the past.

Link, Michael, and Dana live in a quiet town. But it's woken up very quickly when someone sneaks into school and vandalizes it with a swastika. Nobody can believe it. How could such a symbol of hate end up in the middle of their school? Who would do such a thing? Because Michael was the first person to see it, he's the first suspect. Because Link is one of the most popular guys in school, everyone's looking to him to figure it out. And because Dana's the only Jewish girl in the whole town, everyone's treating her more like an outsider than ever. The mystery deepens as more swastikas begin to appear. Some students decide to fight back and start a project to bring people together instead of dividing them further. The closer Link, Michael, and Dana get to the truth, the more there is to face-not just the crimes of the present, but the crimes of the past.

The second book in the acclaimed, action-packed series from New York Times bestselling author Gordon Korman The clones of Project Osiris are free—but they’re being hunted. . . .  After their narrow escape from their “perfect” hometown, Eli, Tori, Amber and Malik are finally in the real world and determined to expose the leaders of Serenity. They decide to track down Tamara Dunleavy, the mysterious billionaire and founder of Project Osiris.

What they discover will change everything, leading them straight into the Plastic Works and the heart of the experiment, in order to uncover the deadly criminals they’re cloned from—and any evidence that will convince the outside world to believe the truth. But the outside world isn’t exactly what they expected—strangers aren’t just unfriendly, they’re dangerous. And the wrong move could send them right back into the arms of Dr. Hammerstrom—and trapped in Serenity for good. On a breakneck journey from Jackson Hole to a maximum security prison—Eli, Tori, Amber and Malik will stop at nothing to take Project Osiris down.

A new standalone middle-grade novel from Gordon Korman, set (partly) in Canada! Keenan is bored. He is recovering from tuberculosis, acquired while overseas with his mom. Now he's stuck sitting in a lawn chair at his dad's place on Centerlight, Michigan, an island of about 7000 residents in the St. Clair River which is divided in two by the Canada-US border. When Keenan meets a girl his age, ZeeBee, who lives on the Canadian side of the border, his life becomes anything but boring. ZeeBee is full of conspiracy theories. Paramount among her theories is that notorious gangster Tommy-Gun Ferguson (original owner of the house she now lives in) buried millions in treasure on the island during the Prohibition era. She' also convinced her recently deceased dog Barney was murdered - apparently he was a notorious terror and not a favourite among the locals. Keenan isn't convinced by either of these theories, but soon some clues turn up that even he can't ignore. Will the pair of them find the treasure and solve the mystery of what happened to Barney . . . or will the dog-murdering criminals find them first? Told in Gordon's now classic multi-voice style, his new novel combines mystery, comedy, and a story of new friendships.

Gordon Korman's new novel poses the question: what would you do if you were given the chance to do things over? Mason and Ty have been best friends since they were old enough to form thoughts. But one day an atomic warhead walks into their seventh-grade classroom ready to annihilate their friendship: Ava Petrakis, the new transfer student from New York. Mason finds himself competing against his best friend for the first time in his life, and it's not pretty. So they make a pact: a non-Ava treaty. If it worked for the Romulans and the Klingons, it has to work for them. At least that's what Mason thought until he realized Ava might actually like him back. Before he realizes it, he's kissing Ava beside the wrecked Tilt-a-Whirl sign in the middle of a freak storm, and his friendship with Ty is obliterated. Five years later, Mason's life is a mess. He has no friends, no girlfriend, his dog has been hit by a Roto-Rooter truck, his parents are divorced and he has just been expelled from school in his senior year. Everything has gone wrong and he can trace all of it back to that one day by the Tilt-a-Whirl sign. If he could go back he would do everything differently. That's exactly what he's thinking when his Volkswagen crashes into a furniture van. When he wakes up, he's 12 years old again. This is his chance for a do-over. Will Mason be able to fix everything, or are some things just a matter of fate?
