When Everything Feels like the Movies

Author/Illustrator/Editor: Raziel Reid

Governor General's Literary Award winner: a glamorous boy fends off the haters with dreams of going to Hollywood.

Governor General's Literary Award winner for Children's Literature; Canada Reads 2015 runner-up. School is just like a film set: there's The Crew, who make things happen, The Extras who fill the empty desks, and The Movie Stars, whom everyone wants tagged in their Facebook photos. But Jude doesn't fit in. As the director calls action, Jude is the flamer that lights the set on fire. Before everything turns to ashes from the resulting inferno, Jude drags his best friend Angela off the casting couch and into enough melodrama to incite the paparazzi, all while trying to fend off the haters and win the heart of his favourite co-star Luke Morris. It's a total trainwreck! But train wrecks always make the front page. 

“His extravagant fantasies and irrepressible nature make Jude one of the most memorable teen characters in recent CanLit.” –CBC Books
