            Surviving school with one eye open. Ross Maloy just wants to be a normal seventh grader. He does not want to lose his hair, or wear a weird hat, or deal with the kids at school who don't know what to say to 'the cancer kid'. But with a sudden and horrifying diagnosis of a rare ey...e cancer, blending in is off the table. Based on Rob Harrell's real-life experiences, and filled with his cartoons and illustrations, this very personal and poignant novel is an unforgettable, hilarious and uplifting story of survival, and of finding music, magic and laughter in all of life's weirdness. EARLY PRAISE FOR WINK: 'Wink is the story of a boy's survival that is both deeply personal and wildly funny. It's fun, it's important, and it's got songs! Rock on, Rob Harrell! Batpig forever!' - Max Brallier, New York Times bestselling author of Last Kids on Earth 'I loved Wink! Heartbreakingly funny, this book is proof that laughter is the best form of medicine. A smart, likable story that's full of heart.' - Meg Cabot, author of The Princess Diaries 'Wink has all the right elements: humour, heart, and a Batpig. A deeply personal and moving story, it will (pun alert) rock you to the core.' - Terri Libenson, award-winning comics creator and author of the bestselling Invisible Emmie 'With a cast of characters that feel both deeply human and fully seen, this book has shot onto my list of all-time favourite books. Simply superb!' - Ingrid Law, author of Newbery Honor Book Savvy 'Funny, moving, and ultimately triumphant, Wink is a powerful story of everyday resilience, and of the different types of family that unexpectedly sprout up in the wake of tragedy.' - M.A. Larson, author of Pennyroyal Academy

            It starts from the premise that neurodiversity (conditions like Autism, ADHD, Dyslexia and the like) is a normal, essential part of human biodiversity - without it we don't get Picasso, Einstein or Greta Thunberg! Yes, neurodiverse kids sometimes require a bit of extra help and p...atience, but they should never be viewed as disordered. Some Brains encourages us all look for our strengths and to understand that brains are like fingerprints - uniquely, wonderfully ours. All brains are special, All brains are smart, All kids have big thoughts, And all kids have big hearts. ALL KIDS ARE SPECIAL - JUST FOLLOW THEIR HEARTS

            In a stunning novel set in the 1980s, a girl with heavy secrets awakens her sleepy street to the complexities of love and courage.It's the summer of '83 on Trowbridge Road, and June Bug Jordan is hungry. Months after her father's death from complications from AIDS, her mother has... stopped cooking and refuses to leave the house, instead locking herself away to scour at the germs she believes are everywhere. June Bug threatens this precarious existence by going out into the neighborhood, gradually befriending an imaginative boy who is living with his Nana Jean after experiencing troubles of his own. But as June Bug's connection to the world grows stronger, her mother's grows more distant - even dangerous - pushing June Bug to choose between truth and healing and the only home she has ever known. Trowbridge Road paints an unwavering portrait of a girl and her family touched by mental illness and grief. Set in the Boston suburbs during the first years of the AIDS epidemic, the novel explores how a seemingly perfect neighborhood can contain restless ghosts and unspoken secrets. Written with deep insight and subtle lyricism by acclaimed author Marcella Pixley, Trowbridge Road demonstrates our power to rescue one another even when our hearts are broken.
