Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Becca has been a frequent guest at her grandmothers rustic cabin in the Gulf Islands, but previously always with her parents. This year is different. With Mom expecting a baby, Becca must make the visit alone. This time the island — and even her grandmother — seem unfamiliar and a little scary. Besides, its February and the island, so festive in summer, is cold and almost deserted. The visit brings out all of Beccas insecurities. . .until she finds an oyster full of pearls, marking the start of small but significant adventures that leave her seeing the island, and herself, through new eyes. As the months pass and her moms pregnancy progresses, Becca returns to the island several times, each time gaining confidence as she experiences fascinating new adventures including watching the annual herring run in a sinking dinghy, scaling a cliff, and even going skinny-dipping. Warmer weather brings a host of relatives, and Becca now faces new challenges from bossy cousins to a first-time sailboat trip to careless adults who almost burn down the cabin. An endearing central character, a sure sense of place, and a richly inventive narrative make Deirdre Bakers debut novel in the young adult genre a memorable one.

Synopsis:

As her parents prepare for the arrival of a new baby back home, Becca goes to Gran's cottage by the sea and is changed by many adventures.
