Twelve-year-old Howard Wallace lives by his list of rules of private investigation. He knows more than anyone how to work…with what he's got: a bathrobe for a trench coat, a makeshift office behind the school equipment shed, and not much else--least of all, friends. So when a hot case of blackmail lands on his desk, he's ready to take it on himself...until the new kid, Ivy Mason, convinces him to take her on as a junior partner. As they banter through stakeouts and narrow down their list of suspects, Howard starts to wonder if having Ivy as a sidekick--and a friend--is such a bad thing after all. Grades 3-6. Winner of the 2018 Red Cedar Fiction Book Award. 2016.

From the author of Ice Dogs comes a riveting adventure about a musher who sets out to prove her impaired…vision won't hold her back from competing in a rigorous sled race through the Canadian wilderness. Perfect for fans of Gary Paulsen. McKenna Barney is trying to hide her worsening eyesight and has been isolating herself for the last year. But at the request of her little sister, she signs up for a commemorative mail run race in the Canadian wilderness—a race she doesn&’t know if she can even see to run. Winning would mean getting her disease—and her sister&’s—national media coverage, but it would also pit McKenna and her team of eight sled dogs against racers from across the globe for three days of shifting lake ice, sudden owl attacks, snow squalls, and bitterly cold nights. A page-turning adventure about living with disability and surviving the wilderness, Dog Driven is the story of one girl&’s self-determination and the courage it takes to trust in others.
