About the books:

No Fixed Address
by Susin Nielsen

Felix Knuttson, twelve, is an endearing kid with an incredible brain for trivia. When he and his single mother lose their apartment in Vancouver, they move into a camper van. When Felix gets to compete on a national quiz show, Felix is determined to win – he feels their luck is about to change! Another wry heartbreaker from the award-winning Susin Nielsen.

Very Rich
by Polly Horvath

Newbery Honor and National Book Award-winning author Polly Horvath has a new fantastical novel about a boy from the poorest section of Steelville, Ohio, whose life changes when he spends Christmas with the richest boy in town. A magical tale that teaches kids about class divisions.

Clara Voyant
by Rachelle Delaney

A fun novel set largely in Toronto’s Kensington Market, Clara Voyant follows a budding young journalist who wants to work for her school newspaper, but is relegated to writing horoscopes (which she doesn’t believe in). But when her horoscopes prove true, she must admit she has predictive powers that could be of use to the paper.
