Stoner & Spaz / Ron Koertge. - London ; Boston ; Sydney : Walker Books and Subsidiaries, [2002. - 149 s. ; 20 cm.
A beautifully written, uncompromising yet poignant account of the relationship between a boy with cerebral palsy and a girl with a drug habit. Ben Bancroft is the invisible man. Nicknamed "Spaz" because of the cerebral palsy that has disabled him since birth, he's a real loner: no parents, no siblings, no friends, just a wealthy, straight-laced grandmother, who looks after him as if he were still a small child. His only escape is the decrepit Rialto Theatre where, on Friday nights, he watches old movies with the other loners. The last person he expects - or wants - to meet there is Colleen Minou. Drugged out, covered in tattoos, clad in ripped tights and a neon mini skirt, she's the kind of trouble Ben's spent his life avoiding. But when Colleen climbs into the seat beside him and rests a woozy head on his shoulder, it's the start of a relationship that will alter Ben's life...for ever. With forthright humour and explicit dialogue, Stoner and Spaz tells an engaging story of the coming together of two teenagers from very different worlds, each with a demon to face...

Life on the Line / David Skipper. - London ; Boston ; Sydney : Walker Books and Subsidiaries, [cop.2002]. - 165, [1] s. ; 20 cm.
A taut, gritty tale about two boys who live on a run-down housing estate near a railway line. When you live life on the line, it doesn't take much to come off the rails. Simon and Darren look out for each other - always have done. Especially these last few years, since Darren's dad died and his mum took up with Milo. Since Si's kid brother got so ill. Since girls, drugs and gangs became a part of life, and messing about on the railway line has turned into more than just playing stupid games. But sometimes even your best mate can't protect you from what life has in store further down the tracks...
