Based around a real event that took place in New Brunswick in the 1960s: the construction of the Mactaquac Dam.

Today Ruby Carlson's little brother Percy might be classified as somewhere in the autism spectrum, but in Haventon in 1965, most folks would call him eccentric. The other kids think he's weird, and when Ruby falls through the ice and has a strange hallucination of the town underwater, they decide she's just as strange.

Weird is a disease, and once you have it, you have it. I'm fourteen years old and infected for good. There's no miracle cure. There's no special prescription. I am quarantined all alone on the Island of the Odd. It's a chronic condition. A lifelong affliction.

Then suddenly it seems that Ruby's vision is coming true: the town is going to be destroyed to make way for a huge new dam. What will happen to the people and places that Ruby has known all her life?

I'm counting this as book 12/13 for my 2013-14 Canadian reading challenge. It will either go out in a teen bookbox or be saved for the Canadian release challenge.
