Abstract
Saul Indian Horse has hit bottom. His last binge almost killed him, and now he's a reluctant resident in a treatment centre for alcoholics, surrounded by people he's sure will never understand him. But Saul wants peace, and he grudgingly comes to see that he'll find it only through telling his story. With him, readers embark on a journey back through the life he's led as a northern Ojibway, with all its joys and sorrows.
With compassion and insight, author Richard Wagamese traces through his fictional characters the decline of a culture and a cultural way. For Saul, taken forcibly from the land and his family when he's sent to residential school, salvation comes for a while through his incredible gifts as a hockey player. But in the harsh realities of 1960s Canada, he battles obdurate racism and the spirit-destroying effects of cultural alienation and displacement. Indian Horse unfolds against the bleak loveliness of northern Ontario, all rock, marsh, bog and cedar. Wagamese writes with a spare beauty, penetrating the heart of a remarkable Ojibway man.

Hello, sixth grade! Mia Lee is a stop-motion filmmaker with a wheelchair and a lot of sass, trying to survive her new middle school. Which doesn?t seem so easy when she?s running for Video Production Club President against certified Middle School Mean Girl, Angela Vanover. Things get weird when Angela starts being nice to her -- well, when other people are around, at least. But when Mia?s campaign posters for VP Club President mysteriously vanish -- no tape, no poster, no nothin? -- the presidential race gets real. With the help of her brain files, an awesome aide with keys to the whole school, and her friends, Rory, Daniela, and Caroline, Mia finds herself on a mission to prove Angela isn?t just an ordinary middle school mean girl, she?s a thief!

Megan, a popular and outgoing fourth-grader, is sure that the "perfect" new girl dislikes her because she is deaf, but persistence and a joint science fair project help Megan see that the two girls have something in common after all. Megan has spent forever planning her positively purple birthday sleepover. She's even made glittery purple invitations for every girl in her class. Then a new girl, Alexis, joins their class. Alexis seems perfect: She's smart, pretty, and rules the soccer games on the playground. But no matter how hard Megan tries to be a friend to Alexis, the new girl is aloof or rude. At first, Megan thinks Alexis is shy. Then Megan starts to fear that Alexis is treating her differently because she's deaf. When the girls are forced to collaborate on a science fair project, Megan learns the truth -- and realizes that nobody's perfect.

Philippe, étudiant au secondaire, découvre qu'il est homosexuel. Le roman raconte le douloureux mais courageux cheminement d'un adolescent vers l'acceptation de son orientation sexuelle. De la négation à la dissimulation (Philippe faisant semblant d'être en amour avec une fille), de l'aveu aux conflits (Philippe est confronté aux réactions négatives de son père, aux préjugés et à la méchanceté de certains jeunes), le garçon trouve sa voie et son équilibre. Il connaît des revers, comme lorsqu'il est en amour avec Stéphano et que ce dernier tombe dans les bras d'Hélène, sa meilleure amie. Mais Philippe peut compter, à divers moments difficiles, sur de bons amis et sur une mère compréhensive. Tel n'est pas le cas de David Marsan, macho à succès qui n'a de cesse de tourmenter Philippe. Or Philippe comprend que David est un être malheureux qui agit ainsi pour nier sa nature profonde d'homosexuel. De son côté, Philippe entame une vie épanouie en poursuivant ses études dans un cégep de Montréal et en participant aux activités de l'association gaie du collège. -- L'auteur, lui-même jeune homosexuel, s'est inspiré de sa propre expérience pour relater l'histoire de Philippe. Malgré quelques longueurs, les situations et les émotions décrites sont crédibles et réalistes. L'auteur donne des pistes positives et éclairantes. Une liste de ressources pour les jeunes gais et lesbiennes est présentée à la fin.

When the local Pet Club won't admit a boy's tiny pet elephant, he finds a solution, one that involves all kinds of unusual animals in this sweet and adorable picture book.
Today is Pet Club day. There will be cats and dogs and fish, but strictly no elephants are allowed. The Pet Club doesn't understand that pets come in all shapes and sizes, just like friends. Now it is time for a boy and his tiny pet elephant to show them what it means to be a true friend.
Imaginative and lyrical, this sweet story captures the magic of friendship and the joy of having a pet.

Abstract
An automobile accident that killed his parents and sister has left Mike Scott bitter, without legs, and with little will to live. His aunt Norma provides a home, and his best friend, Robbie, is attentive, but Mike remains deeply depressed. A project researching and writing the 50-year history of Carlton High School helps engage Mike, until eighth-grader Sarah is assigned to help him. Sarah reminds Mike of his little sister, and he works hard to drive her away. But her curiosity, frankness, and indefatigable good humor gradually nudge Mike out of his self-pity, until the day she disappears.

Abstract
Anxiety is a subjective sense of worry, apprehension, and/or fear. It is considered to be the number one health problem in America. Although quite common, anxiety disorders in children are often misdiagnosed and overlooked. Everyone feels fear, worry and apprehension from time to time, but when these feelings prevent a person from doing what he/she wants and/or needs to do, anxiety becomes a disability. This fun and humorous book addresses the problem of anxiety in a way that relates to children of all ages. It offers creative strategies for parents and teachers to use that can lessen the severity of anxiety. The goal of the book is to give children the tools needed to feel more in control of their anxiety. For those worries that are not in anyone's control (i.e. the weather,) a worry hat is introduced. A fun read for Wilmas of all ages!
