Mermaid Mary Margaret

by Lynn E. Hazen

Eleven-year-old Mary Margaret takes a cruise through the Greek Isles with her recently widowed grandmother and keeps a journal of her adventures.

Shifty

by Lynn E. Hazen

Fifteen-year-old Shifty knows all about moving around and next to nothing about where he came from. When he's assigned to a new foster home and family, he tries hard to keep cool and stay out of trouble. But it seems like the more he tries to do the right thing, the more trouble he finds. As Shifty navigates a series of messy summer adventures, he struggles to find a balance between the street-wise spirit that has helped him survive and his longing for a place to call home. Lynne E. Hazen has created a fast-paced, page-turning plot full of surprises and warmth.
