THE DEPTH OF MATCHES
YA book launch for Depth of Field and Playing With Matches > SEPTEMBER 10
Depth of Field by Chantel Guertin
In spite of the sabotage that resulted in Pippa Greene placing second at Vantage Point, the statewide photography competition, she is off to New York City for two weeks to attend the prestigious Tisch Photography Camp. But the fortnight of fun she was expecting turns out to be more stressful than Pippa expected–not only does she have to grapple with her changing feelings towards her nemesis, Ben Baxter, she is also forced to consider her parents’ past through a different lense, when she is assigned a mentor whose involvment with her family is more complex than she bargained for.
Playing With Matches by Suri Rosen
16-year-old Raina Resnick is at loose ends when she finds herself whisked from Manhattan to Toronto, where she’s forced to live with her strict aunt after causing a scandal and getting expelled from her private school. Estranged from her sister and best friend, Leah, Raina also has trouble making friends at her new school. But when she accidentally stumbles into the role of matchmaker in her tight-knit Jewish community, Raina becomes one of the most popular and sought-after people around, if anonymously, as the Matchmaven.
