- Winner of the Jean Little First Novel Award and the City of Victoria Children's Book Prize -
“The story is approachable and good-natured, wearing its subversive subtext lightly as it presents an unredeemed bad mother, a plot detail that involves questioning the Indian Act and an upending of the white saviour trope … A middle-grade summer story that plays with the genre in ways both satisfyingly familiar and refreshingly new.”
