Books of the Month: June

It’s time to announce… our June Books of the Month! This month, we are so excited to feature “Dirt Town” by Hayley Scrivenor, “A Dolphin Called Jock” by Melody Horrill, and “Wylah” by Jordan Gould and Richard Pritchard. We hope you love them as much as we do!

“Dirt Town” by Hayley Scrivenor 

When best friends Ronnie and Esther leave school together on a sweltering Friday afternoon, Esther never makes it home. Her disappearance looms large in everyone’s mind, but Detective Sergeant Sarah Michaels knows that someone is hiding something. Told over the span of a week, what secrets are being harboured?

“A Dolphin Called Jock” by Melody Horrill 

Melody Horrill was a lost young woman in search of healing. When she volunteers to help her university lecturer monitor a pod of river dolphins, it turns out to be exactly what she needs to shred the demons of her past and find peace. Especially when she meets Jock – a solitary dolphin with a maimed fin.

“Wylah” by Jordan Gould and Richard Pritchard

When Wylah’s family is stolen by a dragon army, she must find the courage  to save them. She is brave, strong-willed, clever – but what will it take for her to become a warrior? This incredible story is inspired by First Nation’s history and is grounded in culture.
