    Exit, pursued by a bear

    Johnston, E. K.

    From #1 New York Times bestselling author E.K. Johnston comes a brave and unforgettable story that will inspire readers to rethink how we treat survivors . Hermione Winters is captain of her cheerleading team, and in tiny Palermo Heights, this doesn't mean what you think it means. At PHHS, the cheerleaders don't cheer for the sports teams; they are the sports team€€”the pride and joy of a small town. The team's summer training camp is Hermione's last and marks the beginning of the end of...she's not sure what. She does know this season could make her a legend. But during a camp party, someone slips something in her drink. And it all goes black. In every class, there's a star cheerleader and a pariah pregnant girl. They're never supposed to be the same person. Hermione struggles to regain the control she's always had and faces a wrenching decision about how to move on. The rape wasn't the beginning of Hermione Winter's story and she's not going to let it be the end. She won't be anyone's cautionary tale. "E.K. Johnston has a seemingly limitless range.... This is realistic fiction at it's best." €€”The Globe & Mail ˜˜… "Johnston's clever€€”but never precious€€”update of Shakespeare's The Winter's Tale is unflinching but not at all graphic in its treatment of sexual violence.... Middle and high school readers will pass this powerful, engaging story around and around." €€” Kirkus Reviews, starred review ˜˜… "Fierce and gorgeously drawn, this is a rape story that doesn't focus on victimhood." €€” Booklist, starred review ˜˜… " A beautifully written portrait of a young woman facing the unthinkable, this is a must-buy for high school collections." €€” SLJ , starred review "Exit, Pursued by a Bear is an important new novel comparable with Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson." €€”VOYA. "This story of a cheerleader rising up after a traumatic event will give you Veronica Mars -level feels that will stay with you long after you finish." €€” Seventeen Magazine A NPR Best Book of 2016 A Publishers Weekly Best Book of 2016 A Booklist Best Book of 2016 A New York Public Library 2016 Top Ten Book for Teens A Chicago Public Library Best Teen Fiction of 2016 A Globe & Mail Best Book of 2016 A CBC Best Book of 2016 A Quill & Quire Best Book of 2016 A Bustle Top 30 YA Book of 2016 A Bookish Best Book of 2016 A Bank Street College Best Children's Book of the Year A finalist for Audible's Best Young Adult Audiobook of 2016 A 2017 Ontario Library Association White Pine Honor Book

    The story of owen Dragon Slayer of Trondheim

    Johnston, E. K.

    Listen! For I sing of Owen Thorskard: valiant of heart, hopeless at algebra, last in a long line of legendary dragon slayers. Though he had few years and was not built for football, he stood between the town of Trondheim and creatures that threatened its survival. There have always been dragons. As far back as history is told, men and women have fought them, loyally defending their villages. Dragon slaying was a proud tradition. But dragons and humans have one thing in common: an insatiable appetite for fossil fuels. From the moment Henry Ford hired his first dragon slayer, no small town was safe. Dragon slayers flocked to cities, leaving more remote areas unprotected. Such was Trondheim's fate until Owen Thorskard arrived. At sixteen, with dragons advancing and his grades plummeting, Owen faced impossible odds€€”armed only with a sword, his legacy, and the classmate who agreed to be his bard. Listen! I am Siobhan McQuaid. I alone know the story of Owen, the story that changes everything. Listen!
