One Night by Plains Cree/Scottish author Melanie Florence is one of the recent SideStreets series from James Lorimer Publishing. This series has edgy and fast-paced novels that combine real-world themes and believeable characters to make for short, heart-stopping books ideal for engaging the most reluctant reader. In One Night, Luna Begay is as studious and serious about her Aboriginal heritage as her sister, Issy, is outgoing and fun. When Issy convinces Luna to go with her to a party full of rich kids, Luna is surprised to end up talking with Jon, who is charming, sophisticated, and very good-looking. But the night turns bad when Jon drugs and sexually assaults Luna. Feeling guilty and ashamed that she will be perceived as easy Luna doesn't tell anyone and remains in denial until Issy figures out that Luna is pregnant. Knowing that her decisions will affect her parents and Issy as much as her own future, Luna has to work out how to deal with the consequences of that one night, and she has to do it fast. Fry Reading Level 3.0. One Night has been selected in the Young Adult/Adult Category Longlist for First Nation Communities READ 2017.
