Finalist for the Washington State Book Award, Leif Whittaker's engaging and humorous memoir tells the story of what it was like to “grow up Whittaker,” in an extended family of accomplished climbers. In 1963, the world followed the first American Mount Everest Expedition, and watched “Big Jim” Whittaker become the first American to stand on top of the world. With wry honesty Leif depicts his unique coming of age tale in which he contends with his father and other mountains.

From Newbery Medalist Cynthia Kadohata comes a brilliantly realized novel for kids ages 10-14. Hockey is Conor's life. It's his dad's whole life too. There are few things they love more than the game, and one of those things is their Doberman, Sinbad. When Sinbad is diagnosed with cancer, Conor puts hockey lessons and practices on hold so they can pay for Sinbad's chemotherapy. Without hockey to distract him, Conor begins to notice more ... and that's not always a good thing. Or is it?
