See where London takes Zee next in Book 2 of The Zee Files, the spin-off series to the bestselling Mackenzie Blue books!
Featured in Children's Book Council's July 2022 Hot off the Press list!
"The second book in the [Zee Files] series continues to follow Mackenzie (Zee) Blue Carmichael through her life in her new school, the Hollows. She has been so stressed with her academics, new country, new home, new school, new friends, and the upcoming festival performance that her teacher reached out to her father and Zee has started seeing a counselor at school. . . [Zee] has a few successes toward the end. . . Scattered illustrations throughout the book are well designed and carried out, I especially enjoy how emotive they are."
—Youth Services Book Review
"In this second installment of the Zee Files, a spinoff of the Mackenzie Blue series, Zee is preparing a song for her school’s art festival. Year nine has proven to be difficult as she adjusts to her new life in the U.K. and being the new student at a posh British boarding school. Zee’s classmates proffer coping tips: meditation, yoga, affirmations. Then Zee begins to see a therapist who encourages journaling. . . Zee is definitely a girl of the 21st century."
The crew can't stop talking about the school's biggest event and talent show of the year, the Creative Arts Festival. But while Zee's excited to see her friends and schoolmates perform, she's not sure if she'll ever be ready for the stage. She's never performed in front of so many people before, or without her bandmates—or in England, no less!
With the Festival slowly approaching, classes also get harder while things with her friends and family become more complicated. Will Zee be able to pull it all together in time?

The barbershop is where the magic happens. Boys go in as lumps of clay and, with princely robes draped around their shoulders, a dab of cool shaving cream on their foreheads, and a slow, steady cut, they become royalty. That crisp yet subtle line makes boys sharper, more visible, more aware of every great thing that could happen to them when they look good: lesser grades turn into As; girls take notice; even a mother’s hug gets a little tighter. Everyone notices.
A fresh cut makes boys fly.
This rhythmic, read-aloud title is an unbridled celebration of the self-esteem, confidence, and swagger boys feel when they leave the barber’s chair—a tradition that places on their heads a figurative crown, beaming with jewels, that confirms their brilliance and worth and helps them not only love and accept themselves but also take a giant step toward caring how they present themselves to the world. The fresh cuts. That’s where it all begins.
Crown: An Ode to the Fresh Cut is a high-spirited, engaging salute to the beautiful, raw, assured humanity of black boys and how they see themselves when they approve of their reflections in the mirror.
