6. Is It Good for the Jews? More Stories from the Old Country and the New (Large Print 16pt) - Adam Biro

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 21.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

With Is It Good for the Jews? Biro offers a sequel to his acclaimed collection of stories Two Jews on a Train. Through twenty-nine tales - some new, some old, but all finely wrought and rich in humor - Biro spins stories of characters coping with the vicissitudes and reverses of daily life, while simultaneously painting a poignant portrait of a world of unassimilated Jewish life that has largely been lost to the years. From rabbis competing to see who is the most humble, to the father who uses suicide threats to pressure his children into visiting, to three men berated by the Almighty himself for playing poker, Biro populates his stories with memorable characters and absurd - yet familiar - situations, all related with a dry wit and spry prose style redolent of the long tradition of Jewish storytelling. A collection simultaneously of foibles and fables, adversity and affection, Is It Good for the Jews? reminds us that if in the beginning was the word, then we can surely be forgiven for expecting a punch line to follow one of these days.

7. Girl in Shades (Large Print 16pt) - Allison Baggio

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 24.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Eleven - year - old Maya Devine has grown up with a warped view of reality. For one, she sees colour around people's bodies and can sometimes hear what's going on inside their heads. These insights make everyone a bit more interesting, but the one person she'll never figure out is her mother. Marigold has never been like other moms, but still, Maya sometimes feels like she is all she has.
When Marigold is diagnosed with cancer and vows to spend her final days in the teepee she's set up in the backyard, Maya's life quickly becomes unbearable. Neighbours and strangers, believing Marigold a prophet, camp out in the front yard, and Maya's father grows ever more distant. Thankfully Maya has Corey Hart, from whose pouty lips ''Never Surrender'' seems to issue for her and her alone. But Marigold's death leaves questions unanswered, and there are some wrongs that even Corey Hart can't right.
Moving from mid - 1980s Saskatoon to the Indian countryside almost a decade later, Girl in Shades follows Maya's search for her mother, her father, and above all, herself. Sweetly funny and deeply perceptive, Girl in Shades offers a fresh take on what it is to grow up and discover who you really are.

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 19.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Emily Danvers, a young New Zealand teacher, finds herself doing relief work in a primary school where one of her pupils will need her to go above and beyond the call of duty to rescue not only him, but his mother and stepfather too, from the circle of abuse. But when she tackles Robert's stepfather, Sel, she sets off a chain of events which leads to catastrophe on a fishing trip. Life lessons come from the school of hard knocks; Sel and Robert are thrown into company with a bitter, elderly recluse on an island. Annie Fitzpatrick has all the experience she needs to keep the two in line. But what will Annie herself learn from her two surprise visitors? ... Robert's mother, Mihi, has been taking drugs to deal with their situation, but when things go horribly wrong and she thinks she has lost both Sel and Robert, does she even want the baby in her womb any longer? Meanwhile Emily's flatmate, Katelynn, seems to have it all - beauty, a great job, and a round of exciting boyfriends. Usually well in control of her life, she is now suddenly in a quandary, and when she accepts a proposal of marriage none of them can predict the tragic outcome. In the midst of being strong for everyone around her, Emily suddenly discovers that her new friend Don, though clumsy and socially awkward, has hidden depths, and his own quiet strength becomes her rock. He even manages to charm her embittered mother! Unexpectedly she finds that her feelings could well become something more than just friendship ... but can she really give up her city life to move to a remote dairy farm, surrounded by his brothers and widowed mother - not to mention one large, floppy sheepdog cross?
