Between Heaven and Earth Eric Walters


J is David McLean’s eldest grandson, so it stands to reason that he be the one to scatter his beloved grandfather’s ashes. At least that’s how DJ sees it. He’s always been the best at everything—sports, school, looking after his fatherless family—so climbing Kilimanjaro is just another thing he’ll accomplish almost effortlessly. Or so he thinks, until he arrives in Tanzania and everything starts to go wrong. He’s detained at immigration, he gets robbed, his climbing group includes an old lady and he gets stuck with the first ever female porter. Forced to go polepole (slowly), DJ finds out the hard way that youth, fitness level and drive have nothing to do with success on the mountain—or in life.

teve thinks a trip to Europe is out of the question—until he hears his grandfather’s will. Suddenly he’s off to Spain, armed with a letter from his grandfather that sends him to a specific address in Barcelona. There he meets a girl named Laia and finds a trunk containing some of his grandfather’s possessions, including a journal he kept during the time he fought with the International Brigades in the Spanish Civil War. Steve decides to trace his grandfather’s footsteps through Spain, and with Laia’s help, he visits the battlefields and ruined towns that shaped his grandfather’s young life, and begins to understand the power of history and the transformative nature of passion for a righteous cause. Born in Edinburgh, Scotland, John Wilson grew up on the Isle of Skye and outside Glasgow without the slightest idea that he would ever write books. John is addicted to history and firmly believes that the past must have been just as exciting, confusing and complex to those who lived through it as our world is to us. Every one of his seventeen novels and six nonfiction books for kids, teens and adults deals with the past. John lives in Lantzville, British Columbia.

Sam is in the race of his life, and if he gets caught, he may never cross the finish line.


am wants to win, no matter what it takes. Bicycle racing is his sport and he has a gift for it— but his attitude keeps getting in the way. After his teammates give up on him, Sam is offered a fresh opportunity. Viktor, an aging Olympic racer, will coach him and maybe give him what he needs to be a winner. But there’s a catch: Sam has to work as a bike courier at Viktor’s company. The work is dangerous and intense, fighting traffic in the inner city to make deliveries at breakneck speeds. Then Sam is assigned by Viktor to the mysterious “dead run,” delivering untraceable packages for an unknown client. Soon Sam is racing away from the law—and risks losing everything. Sean Rodman lives and works in Victoria, British Columbia. He is the child of two anthropologists, who gave him a keen eye for observation and a bad case of wanderlust.

Closer to home, he worked with students from over 100 countries at a non-profit international school. He currently works at the Royal BC Museum.
