Synopses & Reviews
[set star] "Both beautiful and emotionally honest, both funny and piercingly sad."—Kirkus Reviews, starred review
Turner Buckminster hates Phippsburg, Maine. Then he meets Lizzie Bright Griffin, a smart, sassy girl from a poor nearby island community. Lizzie introduces Turner to the wonders of Maine's coast. But the two soon discover that the town elders, along with Turner's father, want to force the people to leave Lizzie's island to start a tourist trade there. Based on the true story of a community's destruction, this sensitively written novel highlights a unique friendship during a time of change, and was awarded both a Newbery Honor and Printz Honor.
This historical novel, based on the true story of a community's destruction, follows Turner Buckminster and Lizzie Bright as their friendship forms and their lives are changed.
