In januari was het weer zover; er was een boekenfestijn in Rotterdam! Nu ga ik in rotterdam naar school dus was dit praktisch een thuiswedstrijd voor me. Ik moest ‘eventjes’ langs. Dat eventjes werd dus een paar uur. Ook zou ik maar ‘een paar’ boeken kopen. Nou het zijn er iets meer geworden dan een paar…

Cathy’s book door S. Steward & J. Weisman
Dit is het eigentijdse, humoristische dagboek van Cathy, geïllustreerd met haar eigen penillustraties. In het boek zit een apart mapje met bewijsmateriaal, zoals krantenknipsels, visitekaartjes, en alles waarop aanwijzingen geschreven zijn, zelfs een servetje! Alle telefoonnummers en websites kunnen echt geraadpleegd worden voor ‘clues’.
Cathy’s boek is een detectiveroman nieuwe stijl, waarin de wereld van het boek wordt gecombineerd met die van internet. Jongeren zullen niet alleen hun hersenen, maar ook alle moderne media moeten gebruiken om zelf het mysterie achter de verdwijning van Cathy’s ex-vriend Victor te ontraadselen.

Dance of Shadows door Yelena Black
Dancing with someone is an act of trust. Elegant and intimate; you’re close enough to kiss, close enough to feel your partner’s heartbeat. But for Vanessa, dance is deadly – and she must be very careful who she trusts . . .
Vanessa Adler attends an elite ballet school – the same one her older sister, Margaret, attended before she disappeared. Vanessa feels she can never live up to her sister’s shining reputation. But Vanessa, with her glorious red hair and fair skin, has a kind of power when she dances – she loses herself in the music, breathes different air, and the world around her turns to flames . . .
Soon she attracts the attention of three men: gorgeous Zep, mysterious Justin, and the great, enigmatic choreographer Josef Zhalkovsky. When Josef asks Vanessa to dance the lead in the Firebird, she has little idea of the danger that lies ahead – and the burning forces about to be unleashed . . .

Casey thought she’d be dying of boredom, but now she’s scared to death!

Funeral Pallor door Sean Cummings
There’s a nest of zombies in an old city warehouse and they’ve got a hankering for human flesh, but that’s the least of Valerie Stevens’ problems. While necromancers are a dime a dozen, these mindless killing machines all share one thing in common: they’re former occupants of every funeral home in the city.
All the evidence points to Val’s best friend, the zombie Caroline. (She’s the only sentient zombie in existence & lately she’s been having trouble explaining her whereabouts.) If Valerie plans to clear her best friend’s name, she’ll have to move fast: someone has dispatched a zombie assassin and there’s a dark plot to overrun the city with the living dead.

Ella Enchanted door Gail Carson Levine
At birth, Ella is inadvertently cursed by an imprudent young fairy named Lucinda, who bestows on her the “gift” of obedience. Anything anyone tells her to do, Ella must obey. Another girl might have been cowed by this affliction, but not feisty Ella: “Instead of making me docile, Lucinda’s curse made a rebel of me. Or perhaps I was that way naturally.” When her beloved mother dies, leaving her in the care of a mostly absent and avaricious father, and later, a loathsome stepmother and two treacherous stepsisters, Ella’s life and well-being seem to be in grave peril. But her intelligence and saucy nature keep her in good stead as she sets out on a quest for freedom and self-discovery as she tries to track down Lucinda to undo the curse, fending off ogres, befriending elves, and falling in love with a prince along the way. Yes, there is a pumpkin coach, a glass slipper, and a happily ever after, but this is the most remarkable, delightful, and profound version of Cinderella you’ll ever read.
Gail Carson Levine’s examination of traditional female roles in fairy tales takes some satisfying twists and deviations from the original. Ella is bound by obedience against her will, and takes matters in her own hands with ambition and verve. Her relationship with the prince is balanced and based on humor and mutual respect; in fact, it is she who ultimately rescues him. Ella Enchanted has won many well-deserved awards, including a Newbery Honor.

To the Devil – A Diva! door Paul Magrs
Karla Sorensen used to be big in horror films. In the 60s and 70s no self-respecting low-budget bloodily schlocky shocker was complete without the Queen of the Vampires presiding over it. She was well qualified for it, after all . at the age of ten she sold her soul to the devil. Now, although spookily ageless, Karla is knocking on in years. Her residuals are drying up and she needs some cash, so she decides to return to the north of England, to Manchester, to appear in Menswear, Britain’s riskiest television soap opera. Not everyone’s happy about her return to the fame game, however. The current star of the late-night show is Lance Randall, the famously bisexual actor, and he is furious to hear that Karla is about to become his co-star. He hates her, he fears her, and he’s convinced that she’s coming to steal his very soul. Dark clouds are massing around Manchester; deep, dark, devilish secrets are about to be unleashed that will wreak havoc on all around.
