“Wrong Way Summer” by Heidi Lang. Equal parts heartwarming and heartbreaking, this is a roadtrip journey and coming of age story about one girl’s struggle to understand when a lie is a lie, and when it’s something more – hope.
“Pine Island Home” by Polly Horvath. Four siblings are left on their own when their parents are washed away by a tsunami. They go to live with Aunt Martha on her farm – when tragedy strikes again. Fiona takes charge and as the responsibilities grow – she is desperate.
