Children's Literature
This novel introduces a spunky pioneer girl trying to find a balance between her family's wishes and her own, along with an adventure sure to appeal to young readers. Ellie is a pioneer girl, at home in the woods and on the small farm where she and Papa and her brother Max live in Canada. When her grandmother arrives from England to visit, Ellie is surprised and indignant at her grandmother's different manners and disdain for the farm. So when Ellie overhears her grandmother tell her father Ellie will accompany her back to England in the fall, she is horrified. To add to Ellie's worries, Papa wants to get rid of a fox that lives on their property. Ellie knows the fox has babies in her den, and she is upset her that father wants to kill it. When she checks on the den and finds an abandoned kit, she secretly begins to care for it. But when her grandmother finds out her secret, it brings surprising results that end in Ellie and her grandmother finding a new respect and appreciation for each other. This growing friendship is tested when Grandmother meets Ellie's Native American friend, Annie, and she and Ellie must take a risky canoe trip across the lake to bring Annie something important. The trip changes many things, including Ellie's perspective of family. 2005, Orca Press, Ages 8 to 11.

Read an Excerpt

Grandmother's steel gray eyes flickered past me.

She saw the rows and rows of black stumps. She stared at them for a long time. Then she shuddered and said, "It's worse, much worse, than I ever imagined."

    Story contest entry Hazel

    I walked into the underground gym in my athletic uniform. Black and red tight pants. Combat boots. A black tea shirt that i tucked into my pants. My brown hair pulled into a tight ponytail on the top of my head. I walked over to where Max sat on the ground in our corner. If i wanted to i would have put Max in charge of the whole plan. But i was the cause of the accident and i needed to be the one to make things right. Plus Max would never make such a rookie mistake as i did. I owed him.
    "Hey Cam." He said as i sat down. "Hey Maxy." He replied to me with his glare that could make you cowar. But i was used to it. He hated being called Maxy. "What do you think we are doing today?" I asked as i looked around the gym searching for any kind if hint but all i got was a little bit if blood on the ground. Our teacher Mr. Arget came in and immediately started calling roll. "I have to tell you something Max." I whispered. "What?" Max said after his name was called. "I will tell you in a little bit." I said as roll call was over. "Ok kids. Today we are goin on a self defense mission in the mountains so grab a jacket. And for you two." He said as he stared me and Max down "are gonna pass off some moves here. To eachother. No supervision by an actuall human being. But remember there are cameras and i will be checking them." Slowly the class left. Leaving me and Max alone. I ran over to the corner and called out to Max. "Take out all of the cameras." He didnt hesitate like i thought he would. He went straight to work. When all of the cameras were disabled i sat down in the middle of the floor. Max sat in front of me and nodded telling me to carry on with what i was gonna tell him. "I have a plan... a plan to get the freedom we have been longing. I am breaking out of this prison. And you Max Farron are gonna come with me."
    Authors Note: the next part is on the next book. HAZEL
