Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green & David Levithan. When two teens, one gay and one straight, meet accidentally and discover that they share the same name, their lives become intertwined as one begins dating the other's best friend, who produces a play revealing his relationship with them both.

Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver. After she dies in a car crash, teenaged Samantha relives the day of her death over and over again until, on the seventh day, she finally discovers a way to save herself.

Girl in Pieces by Kathleen Glasgow. As she struggles to recover and survive, seventeen-year-old homeless Charlotte "Charlie" Davis cuts herself to dull the pain of abandonment and abuse.

Legend by Marie Lu. In a dark future, when North America has split into two warring nations, fifteen-year-olds Day, a famous criminal, and prodigy June, the brilliant soldier hired to capture him, discover that they have a common enemy.

Truthwitch by Susan Dennard. On a continent ruled by three empires, some are born with a 'witchery,' a magical skill that sets them apart from others. Safiya is a Truthwitch, able to discern truth from lie. Iseult is a Threadwitch, seeing the invisible ties that bind and entangle the lives around her-- but not those that touch her own heart. With the help of Prince Merik, a Windwitch-- and the hindrance of a Bloodwitch bent on revenge-- the friends must fight emperors, princes, and mercenaries alike, who will stop at nothing to get their hands on a Truthwitch.

Library Facilities and Services

The Library Learning Commons has undergone significant change over the past few years. Renovations have opened up additional spaces. From our library “Oasis” where students can eat their lunch or snacks, to a number of enclosed co-learning centres where students can work collaboratively with the aid of a white board or smart TV, to a maker space with ergonomic tables and supplies for completing hands-on projects - the LLC is a place where students can access the resources they need and use them in a comfortable, inviting environment to support their learning. If you’re at the school, stop by to see our show stopping circulation desk made from upcycled books by our own students!
