Additional Notes

From The Publisher*Larkin Day is a messed up 15-year-old. She just escaped a nasty Grade 10 year to spend summer with her grandmother in seaside Nova Scotia. It?s the perfect setting to seek healing by putting all her energies into a local café project. If you?re hurting, she learns, one of the best solutions is to invest yourself in something that can make you feel like you?re part of something bigger than yourself. But when an arsonist attempts to destroy the project, Larkin is forced to figure out a way to expose the criminal while keeping her life from coming off the rails again.
Biographical NoteThis beautifully crafted coming-of-age story is Jean Mills? second young adult novel with Red Deer, and in this, as in Skating Over Thin Ice, she reveals a deep understanding of young people, their strengths and the hazards they face in dealing with each other and the world. As well, she?s a pretty fine writer. Jean lives with her family in Guelph, Ontario.
