Product Details


“Fawcett eschews traditional tropes surr”Fawcett eschews traditional tropes surrounding friendship breakups by imbuing Fern and Ivy’s relationship with nuance and tenderly depicting Fern’s struggles to maintain relationships as those dynamics shift. Organically incorporated lessons regarding endangered animals and environmental challenges add further depth.” —Booklist Online

“Fawcett gracefully blends the immediate experiences of her awkward but determined protagonist with a warmhearted, humorous look at a small Salish Sea community. Funny, tender, and engagingly poignant.” —Kirkus

“This sweet, summery story focuses on a small slice of life in a Canadian coastal town, but its poignant portrayal of grief and growth is universally applicable. Fern’s moments of wonder and frustratio nare especially relatable, and her supporting cast is a delight, including an antagonistic but affectionate brother and a ghostly attic possum on patrol. An enthralling examination of the gut-wrenching and beautiful inevitability of change.” —Booklist
