Space Cadet will be available in July.

Page Stuart’s perfectly organized life is flipped upside down… again. She is in unfamiliar territory as the new kid at school. To make matters worse, Shale Pit Academy of Creativity and Excellence (SPACE) students have the dubious distinction of being nicknamed “SPACE cadets.” When a bitter prank war erupts with a rival school, Page and her classmates must ask themselves a difficult question: Are they more than just SPACE cadets?

Published by Acorn Press, My Year as a Space Cadet explores the importance of standing up for oneself and for others, and shows how anybody can become an everyday hero.

Dalvay began writing her debut novel Welcome to Camp Fill-in-the-Blank as a way to escape the notoriously harsh winter of 2015 in PEI. As a child, she could often be found with her nose buried in a book, blissfully lost in another world. Her love of words continued into adulthood when she fell into a career as a copyeditor. Dalvay rediscovered the joy of children’s literature while reading bedtime stories to her two boys.
