If you use '+' in front of a word, then that word will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry +Potter will return results with the word 'Potter'.
If you use '-' in front of a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry -Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
If you use 'AND' between two words, then both of those words will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry AND Potter will return results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'OR' between two words, then bth of those words may or may not be present in the search results.
ex: Harry OR Potter will return results with just 'Harry', results with just 'Potter' and results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'NOT' before a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry NOT Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
Placing '""' around words will perform a phrase search. The search results will contain those words in that order.

Using '*' in a word will perform a wildcard search. The '*' signifies any number of characters. Searches can not start with a wildcard.
ex: Pot*er will return results with words starting with 'Pot' and ending in 'er'. In this case, 'Potter' will be a match.
Fourteen-year-old Dylan has always been troubled by her black skin, the legacy of her absent father. She lives with her French mother, and together they dream of one day sailing across the water to France.
But when her mother dies in a freak accident, Dylan finds herself on a very different journey- a road trip in the care of her mother's grieving boyfriend, Pat. As they travel through outback towns further and further from the water than Dylan craves to take her to France to her mother's spirit, she and Pat form an unlikely bond. One that will be broken when he delivers her to the family she has never known.
A warm, funny and highly original portrait of a young girl's struggle to deal with grief, Metal Fish, Falling Snow explores the complex and confronting dynamic between colour and identity that people of mixed race must often reconcile within themselves. Through families lost and found, this Own Voices story celebrates the resilience of the human heart and the need to know who we truly are.
