ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK ----- This delightful young adult novel was laugh-out-loud funny in places. Sam is pretty sure life improves if you just survive high school. He’s not a bad student, and he actually enjoys learning, but he’s also a magnet for all the alpha-jerks to target. His best friends are Mike, who is a karate champion, gay, and non-expressive; Adrian, somewhat defeated by hormones and with a more-than-passing resemblance to a troll, but kind, loyal and generous; and Allison, painfully shy. They all have computer games and the love of genre movies in common, and that’s enough for Sam. So when the sparky new girl Camilla turns up and works her way into their tight little group, Sam is both confused and attracted. A wonderfully entertaining read, set in Melbourne. Lindy


Sam Kinnison is a geek, and he's totally fine with that. He has his horror movies, his nerdy friends, World of Warcraft u and until Princess Leia turns up in his bedroom, worry about girls he won't. Then Camilla Carter arrives on the scene. She's beautiful, friendly and completely irrelevant to his plan. Sam is determined to ignore her, except that Camilla has a plan of her own u and he seems to be a part of it! Sam believes that everything he needs to know he can learn from the movies. But perhaps he's been watching the wrong ones. Life in Outer Space is Melissa Keil's brilliantly sweet and funny YA debut. It's also the first book to be signed up through the Ampersand Project, Hardie Grant Egmont's initiative for emerging YA writers.
