Stuff that. She's a straight up weirdo! The schoo...l bully wants to smash his face in every chance he gets, and on top of that, his best mate isn't being himself lately. What's going on with him? A book where young characters begin to question their world in Aotearoa. Was land stolen off Maori years ago? If so, what does that mean now? Why was there a war between Maori and Europeans on the banks of the Waikato river? How different are New Zealand Maori from New Zealand Europeans today, and how different did their cultures used to be? When it seems like everything is against Pete, he has to stand up and fight for what he believes in, and he learns that help can come from the most surprising places.

            In this emotionally candid contemporary YA, author Jen Malone delves into the world of a teen whose life is brought to an abrupt halt when she learns she's in dire need of an organ transplant. Hard-charging and irrepressible, eighteen-year-old Amelia Linehan could see a roller de...rby opponent a mile away-and that's while crouched down, bent over skates, and zooming around a track at the speed of light. What she couldn't see coming, however, was the flare-up of the rare liver disorder she was born with. But now it's the only thing she-and everyone around her-can think about. With no guarantee of a viable organ transplant, everything Amelia's been sure of-like college plans or the possibility of one day falling in love-has become a huge question mark, threatening to drag her down into a sea of what-ifs she's desperate to avoid. Then a friend from the past shows up. With Will, it's easy to forget about what's lurking between the lightness of their time together. She feels alive when all signs point elsewhere. But with the odds decidedly not in her favor, Amelia knows this feeling can't last forever. After all, what can?
