Distant Cousin by H.J. Lewis
Angel Wilson by A.D. Fast
According to the CCBC, "Books, magazines and multimedia chosen for Our Choice are recognized and celebrated for the following qualities: excellence in writing and illustration; quality of production and design; relevance of subject matter; reflection of Canadian culture, history, and geography; and entertainment and enrichment value.
Tea Leaf Press has produced several unique series of high/low books for young adults who struggle with reading. These novels are designed to catch their interest and encourage them to read, but they look just like "regular" novels, thereby removing the stigma that teens feel when reading books below their grade level. Detailed summaries of the books, activities for readers, and ordering information is available at www.tealeafpress.com. Information about Our Choice and the Canadian Children's Book Centre is available at www.bookcentre.ca.
Tea Leaf Press's popular Bayview High series is now available from Scholastic Canada! Book summaries, ordering information, and free teaching materials are available at www.scholastic.ca.
