The Summer Of Kicks from the Author: Dave Hackett. A high-speed school musical, an internet scandal, an abusive meat-headed roommate and a pair of shoes that cause more trouble than they’re worth … could this be Starrphyre Jones’ perfect summer? All Starrphyre wants is one date with his dream girl, Candace McAllister. Or at least a meaningful conversation. But how can he get her to notice him when she’s the leading lady of every other high-school guys’ fantasies? For sensitive-meets-dorky Starrphyre, starting a band seems like the natural solution, but when your bandmates have the combined musical ability of a gang of armless monkeys, you really need a backup plan. From the outrageously talented author and cartoonist Dave Hackett comes a laugh-aloud, heartfelt and vivacious novel.

The Summer Of 76 from the Author: Jamie Flynn. Have you ever thought about just breaking away from the confi nes of a hum-drum, boring life? or, maybe you are in an abusive or destructive relationship that you dream of escaping? Well, that’s exactly what Jamie & Lisa did in the summer of 1976! The day after Jamie’s 16th birthday party, high on mushrooms, Jamie and Lisa stole her dad’s car and ran away from home! Too many years of constant fi ghting at home, and a mother who was needlessly harsh & strict, Jamie just wanted OUT at any cost! Her BFF, Lisa was more than happy to oblige! Come join the fun on this incredible journey, complete with romance, fun, partying, soul-seeking & non-stop adventure! Jamie was also in love with the late great singer/songwriter, Dan Fogelberg, and was dead-set on fi nding him in the Rockies, where she was convinced they would ultimately fall in love and live happily-ever-after, and make beautiful music together! Their “spirit-quest” took these two 16 year-old blonde bombshells from the suburbs of Houston, to a 5 month trip all over the western U.S.. From Aspen to Los Angeles, from mansions to sleeping bags in the car: from living it up to not knowing where they would find their next meal: from glamorous cocaine parties with rockstars, to peyote-trips with Indian Shaman in the Sangrede- Cristo Mountains, to a fi eld in Kansas full of marijuana trees that grew like cornfields! For these two little “babes in the woods,” this was One Incredible Summer! Everybody has seen “Thelma & Louise,” and “Cheech & Chong!” so, just imagine the combination of these two movies, and throw in a real- life-first-time-love-affair coupled with the desire to find the deeper meaning of life, and answers to the questions we have about life, and you’ve got one helluva great trip you just wish you’d taken yourself!

Summer Of My Amazing Luck from the Author: Miriam Toews. A Novel by the Governor General’s Literary Award—winning author of A Complicated Kindness Lucy Van Alstyne always thought she’d grow up to become a forest ranger. Instead, at the age of eighteen, she’s found herself with quite a different job title: Single Mother on the Dole. As for the father of her nine-month-old son, Dillinger, well…it could be any of number of guys. At the Have-a-Life housing project–aptly nicknamed Half-a-Life by those who call it home–Lucy meets Lish, a zany and exuberant woman whose idea of fashion is a black beret with a big silver spider brooch stuck on it. Lish is the mother of four daughters, two by a man on welfare himself and twins from a one-week stand with a fire-eating busker who stole her heart–and her wallet. Living on the dole isn’t a walk in the park for Lucy and Lish. Dinner almost always consists of noodles. Transportation means pushing a crappy stroller through the rain. Then there are the condescending welfare agents with their dreaded surprise inspections. And just across the street is Serenity Place, another housing project with which Half-a-Life is engaged in a full-on feud. When the women aren’t busy snitching on each other, they’re spreading rumours–or plotting elaborate acts of revenge. In the middle of a mosquito-infested rainy season, Lish and Lucy decide to escape the craziness of Half-A-Life by taking to the road. In a van held together with coat-hangers and electrical tape and crammed to the hilt with kids and toys, they set off to Colorado in search Lish’s lost love and the father of her twins. Whether they’ll find him is questionable, but the down-and-out adventure helps Lucy realize that this just may be the summer of her amazing luck. Miriam Toews’s debut novel, Summer of My Amazing Luck opens our eyes to a social class rarely captured in fiction. At once hilarious and heartbreaking, it is inhabited by an unforgettable and poignant group of characters. Shortlisted for both the McNally Robinson Book of the Year Award and for the Stephen Leacock Memorial Medal for Humour, it also earned Miriam the John Hirsch Award for the Most Promising Manitoba Writer. From the Trade Paperback edition.

This Ain T The Summer Of Love from the Author: Steve Waksman. This lively and entertaining revisionist history of rock music after 1970 reconsiders the roles of two genres, heavy metal and punk. Instead of considering metal and punk as aesthetically opposed to each other, Steve Waksman breaks new ground by showing that a profound connection exists between them. Metal and punk enjoyed a charged, intimate relationship that informed both genres in terms of sound, image, and discourse. This Ain't the Summer of Love traces this connection back to the early 1970s, when metal first asserted its identity and punk arose independently as an ideal about what rock should be and could become, and upends established interpretations of metal and punk and their place in rock history.
