I bought this book at a charity shop in my neighbouring city of Kitchener, Ontario. I was looking for some Canadian literature to read/share and I noticed the "Canadian" label on the spine.

I am unfamiliar with this series and this author, but I noticed that the book was once part of the Sault Sainte Marie public library, and I am always interested when I see hints like that about the book's "life" before it came into my hands.

The Soo is about 750 km away from Kitchener, so this book has done a bit of travelling already! I wonder where it will go once I'm finished with it!

I'm glad I read this. It's been a nice change from the types of books I have been reading lately.

This book is a little bit dated maybe, but I thought it was a good read overall. There is a fair bit of action and adventure, but it also has a surprising amount of emotional depth. It deals with a wide range of issues-- from the Japanese internment to mental health, from conservation to blended families, from wilderness survival skills to adoption-- many of them coming together under the umbrella of what "family" really is, and the many different ways a family can be composed.

WILD RELEASE NOTES:

My husband's been of work since March and Monday is his first day back, so we wanted to do something special together on his last weekday at home-- problem is, we don't feel comfortable doing anything right now because of our individual Covid risk factors. Eventually we decided that a conservation area hike on a weekday afternoon would probably be ok. We chose fossil hunting at Rock Glen because it was one of the pre-pandemic things we'd hoped to do this summer (it's featured in a travel book we have). While we were there I left this book on a picnic table in the picnic area near the gatehouse. I chose this book for this location because the adventures kick off when the girl in the story finds something unusual in a creek/river. I thought that might be fun for a place where people come specifically to go looking for things in the creek/river :)
