              Skim is Kimberly Keiko Cameron, a not-slim, would-be Wiccan goth who goes to a private girls' school in the early '90s. When her classmate Katie Matthews is dumped by her boyfriend, who then kills himself -- possibly because he's (maybe) gay -- the entire school goes into mournin...g overdrive. It's a weird time to fall in love, but that's what happens to Skim when she starts meeting secretly with her neo-hippie English teacher, Ms. Archer. But then Ms. Archer abruptly leaves the school, and Skim has to cope with her confusion and isolation while her best friend, Lisa, tries to pull her into real life by setting up a hilarious double-date for the school's semi formal. Suicide, depression, love, homosexuality, crushes, cliques of popular, manipulative peers -- the whole gamut of teen life is explored in this poignant glimpse into the heartache of being 16.

              In this beautiful picture book, the wondrous merges with the ordinary when it starts to rain ... inside the house! One day, it starts to rain in Pauline and Louis's house. The whole family looks for the source of the rain, but nothing can be found! Dad tries to mop up the puddles... that form on the floor, Mom holds an umbrella over her head to read, and Pauline and Louis wear their raincoats. Everyone tries to pretend that nothing is wrong. Pauline and Louis are embarrassed and try to keep their rainy house a secret from the other kids at school, expecting to be teased. What would happen if someone found out? Outside, the sun is shining. But inside the house, something new is happening. Plants sprout from the carpet, the bathtub and the kitchen sink. A giant tree spreads its branches through the living room. The neighborhood children, curious about the leaves they see through the windows, come inside. Instead of teasing, they want to play. Pauline and Louis aren't alone with their secret any longer. In fact, having a tree in the house is kind of fun! Soon, the branches grow too big for the house, and sunlight streams in through holes in the roof. There's something else, new, too -- the rain has finally stopped. A story about embracing difference, celebrating the wondrous and expecting the best from our friends. This nuanced and layered story will have both very young and school-aged children requesting repeated readings.

              In Hip Hop World, Dalton Higgins comprehensively examines the hip hop scene as it exists throughout the world. The book reveals the form's musical inspirations from Trinidad, Puerto Rico, Cuba, Jamaica, African American sex satirists, comedians, civil rights-fuelled funk musician...s, spoken word luminaries, and dub and Nuyorican poetry. Author Higgins examines hip hop's racial, multicultural, and multilingual listening audiences, the development of global rap slanguage and its influence on standard English lexicons, and hip hop herstory and cultural taboos around sexuality. He highlights the burgeoning Aboriginal hip hop scenes in Canada and Australia, and movements in colleges across North America and Europe that use hip hop lyrics and artistry to help engage students in learning. Critical of hip hopsters' use of language, the cult of bling, violence, and money, this book takes readers beyond a superficial look and delves into all the issues surrounding this form. Higgins taps into his own powers of pop culture prognostication to predict the future of the genre and the youth culture that spawned it, as this irresistible musical and cultural form spreads literally to the furthest reaches of humanity.
