Mia's eyes are dark brown and her dad s are bright blue, she has masses of curly brown hair but her mum's is straight and blonde. Why doesn t Mia look like her parents? It s because she is adopted. Her adoptive mum tells her that she looks different because her curly hair and dark eyes are presents from the birth parents who were unable to look after her. Taking the form of a dialogue between a little girl and her adoptive mother, the book explores questions that might preoccupy an adopted child. Mia wants to know why she looks different to her adoptive parents; why her birth parents didn t want to keep her and whether her curly hair, dark eyes and dimple really are goodbye presents from her birth parents. Although young children might sometimes worry about looking physically different to their family members, this charming, illustrated book will help adopted children to understand that physical difference is not a barrier to finding love and security within an adoptive family.

A humorous coming-of-age novel and a sharp-edged look at how women are conditioned to hide their fear, regret, loneliness, and anger--even from themselves, from the winner of the Journey Prize. Nina doesn't say anything when her best friend begins to drift away, or when her crush on her Grade 9 English teacher intensifies. She doesn't say anything when her mother tries to match her up with local Indian boys unfamiliar with her Saved by the Bell references, or when her worried father starts reciting Hindu prayers outside her bedroom door. And she won't speak of the incident in high school that casts a shadow over the rest of her life. On her path from nineties high school student to present-day high school teacher, she will learn painful truths about existing as a woman in the world. And as she struggles with her responsibility to her students--even as she fumbles through her own life--she will discover that the past is never far behind her. Set in Halifax, and by turns darkly funny, deeply moving, at times unsettling, even shocking, The Most Precious Substance on Earth examines the fraught relationships that can exist between teachers and students, and between those who take and those who have something taken.
