    In the same series:

    Peace after the First World War inspires hope for a better life that's crushed by the advent of the Second World War.

    Beginning with the Treaty of Versailles and the hope for the birth of a better world, Failed Hope follows the postwar rise of fascism, social unrest, Prohibition, the Great Depression, Adolf Hitler's rise to power, and the wars in Abyssinia, Spain, and China. The general strike in Winnipeg provides a Canadian perspective to the global labour turmoil of the period. The book ends with the failure of appeasement and the outbreak of the Second World War.

    The information is presented in easily digestible segments, accompanied by pho-tographs. Informative sidebars provide background information or connect world events to activities in Canada.

    Failed Hope links with John Wilson's two previous books, Desperate Glory and Bitter Ashes, covering the history of the 20th century from 1914 to 1945 and the effects of its world wars.

    John Wilson was born in Edinburgh, Scotland, and is the author of numerous books for young people. He has written other Stories of Canada titles, including Righting Wrongs and Discovering the Arctic, both of which were shortlisted for the Norma Fleck Award for children's non-fiction. He lives in Lantzville, British Columbia.

    After being outcast to a small community, 10-year-old Michiko's life gets bet-ter when a former baseball star becomes her teacher.

    Ten-year-old Michiko wants to be proud of her Japanese heritage but can't be. Af-ter the bombing of Pearl Harbor, her family's possessions are confiscated and they are forced into deprivation in a small, insular community. The men are sent to work on the railway, so the women and children are left to make the trip on their own.

    After a former Asahi baseball star becomes her new teacher, life gets better. Base-ball fever hits town, and when Michiko challenges the adults to a game with her class, the whole town turns out.

    Then the government announces that they must move once again. But they can't think of relocating with a new baby coming, even with the offer of free passage to Japan. Michiko pretends to be her mother and writes to get a job for her father on a farm in Ontario. When he is accepted, they again pack their belongings and head to a new life in Ontario.

    As the second semester at the Vancouver International Ballet Academy ap-proaches, how will four maturing dancers face the new challenges that await them?

    The Vancouver International Ballet Academy has opened its doors after the winter break, and everyone is back!

    Julian is finding it difficult to concentrate on dance because of his family; his teachers think he could be great if he could just focus. Kaitlyn believes she's the best dancer, but her body type is getting in the way of her (and her mother's) dance ambitions, tempting her to lie. Alexandra is as focused as usual, but others don't seem to understand how much time and energy she has to give to ballet if she wants to be the best. While Taylor is still criticized at VIBA, she's getting a lot of positive attention from outside especially from a recently retired Canadian bal-lerina who's taken an interest in her and Julian.

    Who will get noticed in competition and the spring seminar? Whatever happens, someone's going to lose and someone's going to win.

    Charis Marsh has been dancing for as long as she can remember and loves the people she meets in the dance world almost as much as the dancing. She has per-formed in many productions, including The Nutcracker. Her previous novel in the Ballet School Confidential series is Love You, Hate You. She lives in Vancouver.

    Simon Carpenter is a normal 16-year-old living in Vancouver. Or is he normal? Any type of music drives him crazy.

To solve these mysteries, he takes the rabbit home, only to discover that a foreign "presence" lives inside it. To make matters worse, this "presence" belongs to an army of souls that has plans to supplant the human race.

    A fabulous treasure lies buried deep within an island on Canada's East Coast. Or so they say. For more than 200 years treasure hunters have come to Oak Island seek-ing its cache. They worked long and hard, spent fortunes, and left empty-handed.

    But when Bob Restall and his family got their chance to search for treasure on Oak Island, they knew this time would be different. For nearly six years the Restalls lived and worked on the island, driven by their quest for riches and fame, encour-aged by small successes, toughened by minor frustrations and major setbacks, but continuing to press on until their quest suddenly ended in tragedy.

    Oak Island Family, written by Bob Restall's daughter, describes the family's adven-ture through personal anecdotes and numerous, never-before-published photographs. Those who love history or a good human interest story shouldn't miss this book.

    Lee Lamb was born in Somerset, England, and came to Canada when she was two years old. She has been a secretary, a project coordinator, a hospital social worker, and a high school teacher. Her previous book was Oak Island Obsession. She lives in Burlington, Ontario.

    Angus and his family are sent from Scotland in 1813 on a voyage to start a new life in the strange and cruel new land of western Canada.

    In 1813, cleared out from their beloved Scottish Highlands, 15-year-old Angus, his mother, father, small brother Rabbie, and 100 others sail for Canada to seek a better life with assistance from Lord Selkirk.

There they spend a brutal winter.

They are eager to finally begin their new life but meet obstacles even more dangerous when they are caught up in a struggle between the Hudson's Bay Company and the North West Company, powerful fur-trading rivals. Despite this hard transition, Angus falls in love with this new land and takes his place beside the brave men who risk their lives to protect it.
