Letterbox Love no.1 - Sun 13th May 2012

So here is some of the lovely jubbly stuff I've received over the past week and a bit...

And here is a bit more in depth info...

Earth Girl by Janet Edwards
Meet me, Jarra. Earth Girl.
It's the year 2788, and the universe is divided into two different kinds of people: the Norms, who can portal between other planets, and people like me, the one in a thousand who are born with an immune system which doesn't allow us to leave planet Earth.
Norms come back to Earth for one reason: the study human history. But only if they don't have to interact with us 'Neanderthals' along the way. Well, I've got a plan to change all that.
Call me whatever you like, I'm every bit as good as they are. 
And I'm going to prove it to them.

Zombies Don't Cry by Rusty Fisher
Maddy Swift is just an ordinary girl, until the fateful night when she is struck by lightning and wakes up face down in a puddle. Then it's goodbye to all things Normal - such as breathing and having a heartbeat - and hello to yellow vision and a whole new Afterlife.
Turns out there's a lot more to being a zombie that shuffling and groaning, but surviving school as one of the living dead requires a different set of skills. And things don't get any easier when Maddy realises that she's not the only reanimated student at Barracuda Bay High...
