Seven (the series)
Victoria, BC: Orca Book Publishers, 2012.
When David McLean, beloved grandfather and avid adventurer, dies at the age of ninety-two, he leaves behind a very unusual will that outlines the seven tasks he has set for his seven grandsons. Seven well-known authors bring their signature styles to a series of adventures.

• Ink me by Richard Scrimger.
Bunny doesn’t understand why his late grandfather wants him to get a tattoo. Nobody is more surprised than Bunny when, after he gets tattooed, he is befriended by a kid named Jaden and adopted into Jaden’s gang.
• Jump cut by Ted Staunton.

• Between heaven and earth by Eric Walters.
DJ climbs Mount Kilimanjaro to scatter his beloved grandfather’s ashes. It proves to be more difficult than he anticipated.
