The year Louisiana Merritt – Easy for short – meets Janis Joplin is the year everything changes. Easy is still a teenager, working as a car mechanic in her dad’s shop. But her real talent is that she can sing the blues like someone twice her age. So when she hears that Janis Joplin's "Festival Express" rock tour is passing through her small town of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Easy is determined to see her. It’s 1970 and Janis Joplin is an electrifying blues-rock singer at the height of her fame – and of her addictions. When Janis chances to hear Easy sing, she recognizes her talent and asks her to meet her in Texas to perform. So Easy begins an unusual journey – catching a ride with two nuns traveling in the right direction – in the hope that at the end she'll catch her big break. Easy's story of a young black woman trying to find her way from Saskatoon to Texas comes alive, with all the complications of the time - just two years after the end of the civil rights movement.

Immediately upon her arrival in London to train as a spy, sixteen-year-old Nicki Haddon is assigned to help the British Secret Service infiltrate a drug cartel that is smuggling large amounts of heroin into the country. Placing herself in the midst of a tough East End street gang, she uncovers a plot to create a super-potent opiate and also discovers a royal connection – one that goes back to Queen Victoria herself. Nicki puts her life at risk as she goes after the kingpin of the cartel. Her kung fu skills are severely tested in this action-packed thriller, as the teen spy-in-training tries to unravel not only "the secret of the golden flower," but the ever-present mystery of her own past.
