Daisy’s room seems small until she discovers what’s really important.

Her best friend, Amanda, had a huge bedroom with a closet bigger than Daisy’s entire room. Daisy’s parents had the biggest room in the house. She was trying to figure out how to convince them to trade rooms, when her mother appeared in the doorway. Her face was hidden behind an enormous box. “This is a special box,” Mom said. “What’s so special about it?” Daisy asked. Mom opened the box with a flourish. “This box will make your room bigger.”

D

ddy has worn hearing aids for as long as she can remember. Her mother tells her this makes her special, but now that Addy’s in grade six, she wants to be special for something she’s done. When Addy joins the school running club to keep her best friend, Lucy, company, she discovers she is a gifted runner. Lucy isn’t, which is problematic. Further troubles surface when Addy gets paired on a school project with Sierra, a smart, self-assured new classmate who wears a cochlear implant. Addy is surprised to discover hearing loss is all they have in common—and a shared disability is not enough of a foundation for a friendship. True friends support each other, even if they have different passions and dreams. More importantly, Addy comes to understand that she is defined by more than her hearing loss. She has the power to choose how people will see her, and she does. Debby Waldman is the co-author of Your Child’s Hearing Loss: A Guide for Parents, which she began writing after learning that her then three-year-old daughter would need to wear hearing aids for the rest of her life. Addy’s Race is inspired by her daughter and the many children she learned about while working on the book. Debby is also the author of the Orca picturebooks A Sack Full of Feathers, Clever Rachel and, with Rita Feutl, Room Enough for Daisy. She lives in Edmonton with her husband, daughter and son.

hen Charlie Sykes wakes up in hospital in St. John’s, he learns that he and his father have been in a car accident and that his father is dying. Charlie inherits little more than the brass key that his father pressed into his hand before he passed away. As far as Charlie knows, he has no family in Newfoundland. But then Uncle Nick shows up and is keen to meet his nephew—not because of who Charlie is, but rather because of what Charlie has: the key. That key will unlock a treasure Uncle Nick began searching for more than thirty years earlier. And he would have found it all those years ago if he hadn’t been arrested and sent away for murder. But Charlie isn’t convinced he should give up the key. He leads Uncle Nick on a wild chase through old St. John’s, across Signal Hill and out to the coast. There, high above the rugged Atlantic, Charlie finally comes face-to-face with Uncle Nick, the treasure, and a family history that will leave him with a new understanding of where he comes from and where he’s going. Rob Mills has been an award-winning reporter, newspaper editor and writer in Nova Scotia, Newfoundland and Ontario. Charlie’s Key is his first published novel. He lives in Peterborough, Ontario, with his wife and two daughters. Themes: mystery, adventure, child abuse

Orchestrated Murder Rick Blechta

Murder, music and mayhem—one dead body; seventy-six suspects!

S

omething is terribly wrong at Symphony Hall. Luigi Spadafini, the symphony’s star conductor, has been murdered—and the entire orchestra has confessed to the crime. This is the mess that Detective Lieutenant Pratt walks into one Saturday morning. Overworked and tired, he’s also saddled with Detective Ellis, the newest member of the homicide squad and still very wet behind the ears. With both the mayor and several big shots from the symphony’s board of directors demanding a speedy resolution of the crisis, Pratt is pushed to the limit. The trouble is, he also faces a seemingly endless list of suspects with good reasons to want the philandering Spadafini dead. With the clock ticking, Pratt is forced to use both his wits and the computer skills of Detective Ellis to solve the mystery. Rick Blechta has two passions in life: music and writing. A professional musician since age fourteen, he brings his extensive knowledge of that life to his crime fiction. He is now the author of six novels, one of which, Cemetery of the Nameless, was shortlisted for the Arthur Ellis Best Novel Award (2005). Themes: mystery, music, mayhem

“Soundings...use simple vocabulary and short sentences combined with lots of authentic dialogue and engrossing subject matter, making them ideal for high-interest, low-reading-level collections. The authors are not afraid of controversial language or material, which is in large part the secret of the series’ appeal.” VOYA
