Book spotlight for Middle Grade Carousel November 2022: It's There in Black and White features the book MAXI'S SECRETS by Lynn Plourde

Timminy’s family moves just in time to start middle school. His consolation prize is Maxi—a gentle giant of a dog who turns out to be deaf.

Unfortunately, being new in town and a bit of a runt makes you perfect bully bait, so Timminy spends a little too much time getting shoved into lockers and feeling sorry for himself.

While Timminy is determined to do all he can to help Maxi, caring for the Great Pyrenees is full of some much-needed lessons for Timminy.

Rook

Door to the Lost by Jaleigh Johnson

One of the first things she’d learned upon her arrival in this world was that the children of Talhaven didn’t have white hair. If she wanted to blend in, she needed to change hers. The color she’d chosen—black with just that hint of white—reminded her of a rook, a common crow. That was how she’d come up with her name, since she didn’t remember her real one.
