Are you looking for more complex texts for your students, but still with the same easy reading levels for which HIP Books are known? These novels offer a rich reading experience for all your students – not just for struggling readers!

HIP Mainstreet novels offer more complex plots and more character development, while while maintaining accessible Grade 2-3 reading levels. Survival features a teen heroine who must go to dramatic lengths – including performing emergency surgery – to keep her family alive after a plane crash.  You Can’t Make Me combines a coming-of-age story with traditional Métis folklore. Street Racer tells the tragic tale of two cousins involved in a life-and-death sport. The Warning contains six short stories of the supernatural.  These stories make exciting reading and offer many opportunities for rich discussion in class.
