Wicked Hungry

Here’s the set-up:

Everyone knows it’s hard to enter high school. But no one knows better than Stanley Hoff. It doesn’t help that at night he wants to howl up at the moon. Or that in his vegetarian household, Stanley Hoff is WICKED HUNGRY.

In fact, he’s filled with forbidden meat-cravings. How much beef jerky, how many Slim Jims can Stanley hide in his room, in his locker at high school?

When a very hairy showdown with a school bully sets in motion a great chain of events that include an invitation to cheerleader Meredith’s Halloween party, Stanley has to ask himself some important questions. Can he overcome his shyness and get the girl? Save his family, his community and his diverse group of friends from the growing supernatural threat? All while figuring out how to control the beast within?

Whale Song: School Edition

by Cheryl Kaye Tardif

4.8 stars – 85 Reviews
Text-to-Speech: Enabled
Here’s the set-up:
Originally published in Canada in 2003 (but never distributed in the U.S.), this moving story features Sarah Richardson, whose family moves from the Montana countryside to Vancouver Island just as she’s about to enter sixth grade. Sarah soon finds that island life suits her perfectly–thanks, especially, to her new best friend, Goldie, whose Native American heritage Sarah finds fascinating, especially the wisdom passed to the girls from Goldie’s grandmother, Nana. Sarah is also intrigued to learn that her marine-biologist father shares a passion with her new Indian friends: killer whales, which the natives revere and her father studies. Life isn’t all native spirituality, however, as Sarah must confront a family tragedy that will change her life forever. Though overly melodramatic in places, Tardif’s story has that perennially crowd-pleasing combination of sweet and sad that so often propels popular commercial fiction, especially coming-of-age stories. Tardif, already a big hit in Canada, may soon be a name to reckon with south of the border.
