What the Ground Can't hold.
By: Shady Cosgrove
Publisher: Pan Macmillan 2013
Two Americans are presumed dead and
nine people are trapped in a cabin after
an avalanche in the remote Andes. With
food supplies dwindling, these unlikely
companions are forced to extremes and
discover they are bound by more than
their surroundings -- each has a secret
that links them to Argentina's Dirty War.
Finches of Mars.
By Brian Aldiss
Publisher: Friday Project 2013
Mars is in crisis. 10 years have
passed since the formation of the
Earth colony on the red planet but it
has yet to produce a healthy child.
Every baby has been deformed and
stillborn. With Earth overpopulated
and at war the Mars experiment is
crucial to the survival of the human
race. Something must be done to
ensure its success.
The library has more than 650 ebooks to
