Megan Clendenan has worked for women’s rights, mental health and youth empowerment nonprofits as well as an environmental law group, which is when she realized for the first time that the court system could be a way to help protect human health from pollution and toxic chemicals.She combined that knowledge in Fresh Air, Clean Water: Our Right to a Healthy Environment (Orca $24.95) for ages 9 – 12, which explores everyone’s right to a healthy environment, profiles kids taking action on environmental rights around the world, and outlines the tools needed to take action. It was featured on CBC Books’ list of 25 middle-grade books to watch for in Spring 2022. Illustrations by Julie McLaughlin. Clendenan’s previous titles include Design Like Nature: Biomimicry for a Healthy Planet (Orca, 2021) co-authored with Kim Ryall Woolcock; and her debut novel Offbeat (Orca, 2018) about a 14-year-old studying classical violin who really wants to be a folk musician. 9781459826793
