Overview

In this Spellbinding Voyage into the shadows of the British Columbian coastline, tragedy strikes a Native American community when seventeen-year-old Jimmy Hill vanishes at sea. Left behind to cope during the search-and-rescue effort is his sister, a wayward girl with a dark secret. She sets off alone in search of Jimmy and heads for Monkey Beach, a shore famed for its Sasquatch sightings. Infused with darkness and humor, Native American lore, nature spirits, and human tenderness, Monkey Beach is "glorious Northern Gothic" (Toronto Globe and Mail).

Eden Robinson pulls you deep into the mind and spirit of the main character whose life is very different than mainstream America. The story is uplifting in spite of the very serious incidents involved.

Those are the only words I can use to describe this book. The blurry lines between reality and myth move smoothly and calmly, never forgetting to bring the reader along. Written in an easy flow of language, I was never left wondering what was going on or why. My only complaint would be the quickness with which it ends, almost abruptly. Otherwise, I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to enjoy a fleeting moment in one girls life, a moment that creates an expansive landscape and story.
