A riveting story of a pivotal battle in the Seven Years' War that changed Canadian history forever. Seventeen-year-old Sébastien de L'Espérance and his friend Guillaume have fought to keep the British from getting a foothold in Île Royale (now Cape Breton Island) ever since the young men came from France two years ago. Britain has blockaded Louisbourg, and supplies for the 4000 inhabitants are running short. Despite Louisbourg's massive defences, if cut off from supplies provided by France, it cannot survive. Both young men are members of the Compagnies Franches de la Marine. They are sent out on scouting missions that provide valuable information about the British troops - troops which outnumber the French three to one. When British warships arrive in force, Sébastien vows to defend the town, his friend Guillaume, and the woman he loves.

From the acclaimed author of The Space Between and The First Stone All Ethan Palmer wants is wheels of his own, and he's finally saved enough money to buy his dream car . . . when he accidentally rams his dad's Volvo into their garage. It's not like his lawyer/politician father can't afford to pay for the damage, but of course his old man is going to turn this into another Big Life Lesson. With all of his hard-earned cash going into repairs, Ethan won't be sliding behind the wheel of that Mustang Cobra any time soon. Or will he? He thinks he's found a way to make some easy money, and suddenly nothing is more important. Not school, not the girl he loves, not even the secrets that divide his family. For Ethan, it's all about payback. But he-has no idea what his choices will cost him.
