Kids of Appetite, or They Lived and They Laughed and They Saw That It was Good, by David Arnold is a stand-alone novel worth reading by anyone and everyone. It’s a dynamic and diverse read, written by an author with a clear skill for getting you inside the heads of his real-as-life characters. With both subtle and blatant messages woven throughout about growing up, acceptance, and the power of love, its relevance is clear. Though Kids of Appetite is meant for young adults, it is an novel to be thoroughly enjoyed by all.

When most people hear the name ‘Frankenstein’, they think of a huge, green monster with bolts in his head that walks around like a zombie. However, the original novel by Mary Shelley is not the story you think it is. It’s not about an evil monster causing havoc for the sake of being evil, nor is it about the task of creating this monster. Frankenstein isn’t even the invention; he is the inventor. The monster that most people think is called Frankenstein is actually a grotesque, nameless, and intelligent being that causes enough empathy in readers to make them believe that the real monster is indeed the scientist who created him.

Kiss My Math: Showing Pre-algebra Who’s Boss by Danica McKellar isn’t a typical math book. It's a book about how math is everywhere around you. But instead of explaining the world through math, it explains math through the world. Discover Catalogue - Kiss My Math I love this book because I sometimes struggle in math class. I take one look at the numbers swirling in front of me, and my brain defaults to “panic.” One way to help this is to talk to my teacher or my parents. But another solution is to turn to Kiss My Math, because this book is full of little tips and tricks that make math more relatable to me and less frightening.

Maybe it’s the fact that I just finished re-caulking my windows, the success of our Yule Ball, or just the relentlessly cheerful march through the holidays, but my cold, cold Grinch-like heart has been feeling a lot more optimistic lately. In keeping with that spirit, I thought I’d try to ferret out the sunny side of some unfortunate circumstances any student in the province is probably feeling as we trudge on into 2017.
