Book Description
When the fish plant closes in her home community, nine- year-old Katie Johnson watches all her friends move away. As Katie's mother and grandmother struggle to stay in their home, Katie learns to appreciate the help of neighbours, and begins to find ways to help out herself. The discovery of an unexpected talent gives Katie's mother hope of a new vocation, but can she support her family as a craft worker? Katie has an idea that might just make that possible. This realistic story of life in rural Newfoundland after the 1992 moratorium on northern cod stocks is written to appeal to newly independent readers.
