Coyote Tales of the Northwest
Author: Thomas George
Format: Paperback
  • A creature of myth and magic emerging from the mist-shrouded forests of the Northwest, Coyote appears as a creator, messenger, hero, trickster, fool or shapeshifter. Always on the lookout for fun, mischief or the opportunity to help humans, Coyote's encounters with gods, demons and the supernatural bring to life the rich cultural traditions of the Northwest peoples: * Coyote pierces the sky with his arrow and, with the help of Fox, steals fire from the people in the clouds * Trapped inside a large cedar tree, Coyote takes himself apart, putting each body part through an opening in the bark of the tree, then reassembles himself outside * Coyote helps Wolf rescue his wife from her kidnapper, the Great Whale * Once Coyote finished his work on earth, the Great Spirit placed him in a deep slumber; when the world needs him again, he will reappear and render his unique brand of mischief and spiritual rescue.

Hooked: When Addiction Hits Home
Format: Paperback
  • Jenny dealt with the stress by forgiving her mom -- over and over and over again.

    This collection of ten true stories is based on interviews with people who, in their youth, lived with an addicted parent or sibling. The subjects speak honestly about what it was like to grow up with a family member addicted to alcohol, drugs, food, pills, or gambling.

    While describing how they managed to care for themselves and younger siblings, as well as the addicted family member, interviewees also touch on the topics of depression, social stigma, coming out gay or transgendered, and the health problems caused by addiction and stress.

    The maturity, sensitivity, and even the sense of humor in these accounts will give teens going through similar situations the important realization that they are not alone and that there are many ways to break free from the chains of others' addictions and to move on positively with one's own life.

    It's estimated that 1 in 8 Americans struggles with addiction to drugs or alcohol. Hooked is an excellent resource for both kids and adults affected by the addiction of friends and family members.

    Ages 12 - 18

Islands of Decolonial Love
Author: Leanne Simpson

Found on reserves, in cities and small towns, in bars and curling rinks, canoes and community centres, doctors offices and pickup trucks, Simpson’s characters confront the often heartbreaking challenge of pairing the desire to live loving and observant lives with a constant struggle to simply survive the historical and ongoing injustices of racism and colonialism. Told with voices that are rarely recorded but need to be heard, and incorporating the language and history of her people, Leanne Simpson’s Islands of Decolonial Love is a profound, important, and beautiful book of fiction.
