Julia is very short for her age, but by the end of the summer she'll realize how big she is inside, where it counts. This is the summer she gets cast as a munchkin in a production of The Wizard of Oz. She hasn't ever thought of herself as a performer, but as Julia becomes friendly with the poised and wise Olive - an adult with dwarfism who doesn't let her size define her - and with a deeply artistic neighbour named Mrs. Chang, she finds that she may not be as tall as everyone else, but she more than deserves to hold her head high.

Newbery-winning Rules meets Counting by 7s in this charming story of love and family. When eleven-year-old Thyme Owens' little brother, Val, is accepted into a new cancer drug trial, it's just the second chance that he needs. But it also means the Owens family has to move to New York, thousands of miles away from Thyme's best friend and everything she knows and loves. The island of Manhattan doesn't exactly inspire new beginnings, but Thyme tries to embrace the change for what it is: temporary. After Val's treatment shows real promise and Mr. Owens accepts a full-time position in the city, Thyme has to face the frightening possibility that the move to New York is permanent. All she can do is count the minutes, the hours, and days, and hope time can bring both a miracle for Val and a way back home. "Debut author Conklin writes with a pitch-perfect middle-grade voice... A nice choice for middle-grade readers who enjoy heartfelt and emotional novels."--Booklist "Thyme's remarkable perseverance and resilience will inspire readers of Conklin's compassionate tale."--Kirkus Reviews

The only thing you’ll find on the summit of Mount Everest is a divine view. The things that really matter lie far below. – Peak Marcello After fourteen-year-old Peak Marcello is arrested for scaling a New York City skyscraper, he's left with two choices: wither away in Juvenile Detention or go live with his long-lost father, who runs a climbing company in Thailand. But Peak quickly learns that his father's renewed interest in him has strings attached. Big strings. As owner of Peak Expeditions, he wants his son to be the youngest person to reach the Everest summit--and his motives are selfish at best. Even so, for a climbing addict like Peak, tackling Everest is the challenge of a lifetime. But it's also one that could cost him his life. Roland Smith has created an action-packed adventure about friendship, sacrifice, family, and the drive to take on Everest, despite the incredible risk. The story of Peak’s dangerous ascent—told in his own words—is suspenseful, immediate, and impossible to put down.
