A stunning novel about a teenaged prostitute trying to survive -- and save a friend's life -- in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside during the time of the Pickton murders.
One in Every Crowd
A book of honest stories about gender and identity is for anyone who has ever felt different or alone. Included are stories about Ivan's tomboy youth and her adult life, where she experiences cruelty and kindness in unexpected places.
It's a night she'll never remember. When Libby Thorne wakes up in the hospital, they tell her she was in a car accident. They tell her it was her fault, and that an innocent victim is clinging to life. The problem is, Libby can remember none of it. As memories start returning, can Libby face a truth that may be darker than fiction?

As the two struggle their way through the jungle of the Ashau Valley, and they experience something that goes far beyond what either of them expected.

But soon the group’s fate is determined less by what’s happening outside and more by the unpredictable and violent bids for life—and death—inside.

Are you a young person, thinking about moving out but not sure what to do?

100 Days That Changed Canada
Every Canadian knows a handful of dates that changed our country—July 1, 1867; November 11, 1918; September 28, 1972—but our nation’s history, now more than 50,000 days long, runs much deeper than those iconic moments. These subjects come to life in 100 images that touch us, unsettle us, or make us proud to be Canadian.
At twenty-four, Guy Paul Morin was considered a bit strange. He still lived at home, drove his parents' car, and kept bees in the backyard. He played the saxophone and loved the swing music of the 1940s.

In the small Ontario town where he lived, this meant Guy Paul stood out. So when the nine-year-old girl next door went missing, the police were convinced that Morin was responsible for the little girl’s murder. Over eight years, police manipulated witnesses and tampered with evidence to target and convict an innocent man. It took ten more years and the science of DNA testing to finally clear his name.
