He's amusing himself until it's time to go back to Canada. But soon those labels become actual people: loner Liam, who makes it his mission to befriend Norris; Madison the beta cheerleader, who is so nice that it has to be a trap. And Aarti the Manic Pixie Dream Girl might be a real love interest in the making. When Norris screws everything up royally on prom night, will he be able to stop hiding behind his snarky opinions, and start living his life? For junior and senior high readers. 2019.

Eleven-year-old super skateboarder Sibby Henry liked her life just fine until her father quit his job and forced her family… to move from Charlottetown to Halifax. Now she's living with her Nan and Pops, starting at a new school and missing her super best friend Vera. On top of all that, Sibby is without the one thing that helps her feel confident and grounded: her skateboard. Within minutes of arriving at her new school, Sibby knows she will have a hard time following Vera's two rules for making new friends. First rule, stay chill. Second, ignore trouble. It's hard to be chill when you see a brand new super dope skate park but you no longer have a skateboard. And, when a kid named Freddie starts to push Sibby's friend around, Sibby knows she's found the kind of trouble that can't be ignored. Grades 5-8. 2019.
