The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn

by Mark Twain

Sail down the Mississippi with rascally Huck Finn! Huck Finn spits, swears, smokes a pipe and never goes to school. With his too-big clothes and battered straw hat, Huck is in need of 'civilising', and the Widow Douglas is determined to take him in hand. And wouldn't you know, Huck's no-good Pap is also after him and he locks Huck up in his cabin in the woods. But Huck won't stand too much of this, and after a daring escape, he takes off down the Mississppi on a raft with a runaway slave called Jim. But plenty of dangers wait for them along the river -- will they survive and win their freedom?

Anne of Ingleside

by L. M. Montgomery

The sixth book in the Anne Shirley series. "It's been lovely to be Anne of Green Gables again for a week, but it's a hundred times lovelier to come back and be Anne of Ingleside." There's never a dull moment at Ingleside, Anne's lively home: Anne is now the mother of five children - with a sixth baby on the way. But even with endless demands on her time, she couldn't be happier and there's nowhere in the world she'd rather be. No matter what life brings - whether it's the numerous scrapes her children get up to or Gilbert's insufferable aunt outstaying her welcome by months - Anne faces every challenge with her usual verve for life. But then she begins to suspect that Gilbert doesn't love her any more. She's a little older, it's true, but Anne is the same spirited redhead she's always been. She hasn't changed. But has he?

Anne of Windy Willows

by L. M. Montgomery

The fourth book in the Anne Shirley series. "Gilbert, I'm afraid I'm scandalously in love with you." Anne Shirley and Gilbert Blythe are at last engaged, but still they are apart: for three years Gilbert will be away at medical school, while Anne has a new job as principal of Summerside High School. Absence couldn't make their hearts any fonder, though, and they share all their love and news in letters. At Summerside, Anne settles in happily, lodging at Windy Willows, home of two widows - Aunt Kate and Aunt Chatty - and their irrepressible housekeeper, Rebecca Dew. With firm friends like these beside her, she can face anyone - even the Pringles, the 'Royal Family' of Summerside, who waste no time in snubbing Anne and letting her know that she wasn't their choice for principal. Can Anne ever hope to win them over?

In the old orchard, on a perfect sunny day, surrounded by their dearest friends, Anne Shirley and Gilbert Blythe are married at last.The couple begin their new life together far from Avonlea, at Four Winds Harbour, where Gilbert has found the perfect home - a little white house on the shore, overlooking the sea. Before long, they have made new friends: Captain Jim, the lighthouse keeper; indomitable Miss Cornelia Bryant, who always speaks her mind; the writer Owen Ford; and beautiful Leslie Moore, whose sad life has led her to bitterness. When Anne and Gilbert face their own tragedy, they will need all their courage, and the support of their friends, to help them through.

Annie On My Mind (PDF)

by Nancy Garden

This groundbreaking book, first published in 1982, is the story of two teenage girls whose friendship blossoms into love and who, despite pressures from family and school that threaten their relationship, promise to be true to each other and their feelings.

Edwards Award committee said, "Nancy Garden has the distinction of being the first author for young adults to create a lesbian love story with a positive ending. Using a fluid, readable style, Garden opens a window through which readers can find courage to be true to themselves. " The 25th Anniversary Edition features a full-length interview with the author by Kathleen T. Horning, Director of the Cooperative Children's Book Center. Ms. Garden answers such revealing questions as how she knew she was gay, why she wrote the book, censorship, and the book's impact on readers - then and now.
