Theories of relativity by Barbara Haworth-Attard( Book )
6 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 683 libraries worldwide
When his volatile mother throws him out of the house and he loses contact with his two younger brothers, sixteen-year-old Dylan is forced to live on the streets and beg for money, yet through it all, he finds a way to survive. My fingers search the cardboard container, but I've finished the fries. I squirt ketchup on my fingers and lick it off. I'm never full. I think it was one of the reasons I had to leave, or, rather, my mother kicked me out. Jenna's a runaway, but I'm a throwaway, tossed out, like garbage. Keep your wits about you. Check your back. Do what it takes to survive on the streets. Dylan is living on the streets not through any choice of his own, unlike some of the teenagers he meets in the same situation. He's been cut loose by his unstable mother, and lost most contact with his two younger brothers. He has nothing but his backpack stuffed with a few precious belongings and the homeless kids he meets. At least he has his theories. No one can take those away from him. Like how every fourth person throws him spare change; how no one does anything for anyone without a price; and how he just might be able to find a place in this complicated world. Disturbing, gritty, painful, hopeful, his is a story of a sixteen-year-old determined to survive against all odds

Haunted by Barbara Haworth-Attard( Book )

Dee is feeding the chickens the morning that bones are discovered on the mountain. Something doesn't feel right -- and her feeling is confirmed when local police show her a ring that they found with the bones, a ring belonging to Mary Ann Simpson, who disappeared four years earlier. Other girls, Dee learns, have disappeared too, unusual for a small town nestled in the shadow of the Bruce Peninsula's rugged escarpment, the "mountain" that Dee loves. Like her Gran, Dee has "the sight," an ability not only to see spirits from the afterlife but also to experience their deaths -- a quality that becomes more horrifying as the story takes darker turns. While trying to help with the investigation, Dee is drawn into a deepening mystery that soon strikes terrifyingly close to home.-publisher

Upper Fort Garry, colonie de la rivière Rouge, 1862. Henriette Palmer a 12 ans lorsqu'elle met en terre sa mère, décédée d'une fièvre causée par la naissance d'un garçon mort-né. La jeune fille n'a plus qu'une raison de vivre: William et Lola, son frère et sa soeur, respectivement âgés de 10 et 4 ans. Or, le couple Owen, qui a recueilli le trio, projette de partir avec les deux enfants pour Toronto et de confier Henriette à une nouvelle famille, où elle travaillera en tant que servante. Bien décidée à ne pas laisser les Owen séparer sa famille, Henriette se déguise en garçon et se joint à un convoi de mineurs en partance pour Cariboo, où elle espère retrouver leur père, qui participe à la ruée vers l'or. Mais la traversée du pays est rude et semée d'embûches. Elle pourra heureusement compter sur la protection et l'amitié de nouveaux copains. -- Rédigé sous forme de journal intime, ce roman recrée la frénésie et la "fièvre" qui s'emparèrent des chercheurs d'or au milieu du 19e siècle, mais également les conditions de vie difficiles de l'époque, à travers les aventures d'une héroïne déterminée et volontaire. Un dossier photographique et historique ajoute à l'impact du récit. [SDM]
