horizons and stimulate our ideas. Without it, we are not only
diminished, we are starved’

The New Girl (chix)
by Cornelia Funke
Age Range: 9-11
The C.H.I.X, Charlie, Hannah, Izzy and Xa, are off on a school trip, but there is a new girl Helena who is desperate to join their gang. She offers to be a secret spy on the Piranhas, the rival boy gang, to find out what they are planning. When they hear about the ghost of Penmarric who is supposed to haunt the area where they are staying and experience some mysterious goings on, Charlie realises that someone is behind it, and for once it is not the Piranhas. The girls soon learn that being part of a gang isn’t always about winning. When away from home, the real test is being there for each other.
Another book in the series about the C.H.I.X by German author Cornelia Funke. The other title in the series is The Summer Gang.
