Read full description of the books:



Brick's dad has a temper; you never know when he's going to blow. His mom's self-absorbed and leaves the care of his little sister to Brick. It's no wonder Brick has to let off a little steam of his own once in a while. This summer Brick's going to take up Mr. Larkin's offer of work, even though he's been forbidden to fraternize with the neighbours. He's going to earn enough money to escape on the day of his sixteenth birthday. But who will his dad turn to when he doesn't have a son to kick around anymore? Home Truths is a revealing portrait of a bully-in-the-making and his journey to redemption.

Read information about the author

Ebook Home Truths read Online! Late in 2003, Jill MacLean’s eight-year-old grandson asked her to write him a book. Yes, she said, of course I will. She didn’t stop to think that she’d never written a kids’ book, and hadn’t read any for more years than you’d care to know.

The learning curve was as steep as a small mountain, and rejection slips flew like snowflakes.

By then – on a roll – she knew she had to write a book from the point of view of a bully. Home Truths, narrated by fourteen-year-old Brick MacAvoy, was published in 2010.

To her gratification, awards and nominations also flew in the door.
She went back to the classroom as a visiting author – terrified out of her wits the first time. Now, though, she loves meeting her readers.

Another book grabbed her by the throat. Nix Minus One, written in free verse, is about fifteen-going-on-sixteen-year-old Nix, an introverted guy who likes working with wood, who starts walking a mistreated dog, and whose older sister is spinning out of control…
