Description-

  • One summer will change everything.

    For as long as she can remember, Maisie has spent her summers on Kingfisher Island. She and her beloved cousin Una run wild, and Maisie feels the warm embrace of her big, extended family.

    This summer Maisie needs that escape more than ever. But now everything on Kingfisher has changed: Una has returned from her mainland school a sophisticated young woman too mature for childish games, and even worse, she has an all-consuming infatuation with David Meyer, both an old friend and an older man. Soon Maisie finds herself playing second fiddle—jealous of Una and David's closeness, and unsure of what those feelings mean.

    When Maisie's greatest attempt to maintain the special magic of her friendship with Una goes up in smoke, it seems as though all is lost. But with an enormous revelation, and a heartrending intervention, Maisie may finally discover the strength she needs to find the same peace that the island has brought her within herself.

Reviews-

  • Quill & Quire (starred review) "[Pearson] has a wonderful gift for depicting the inner lives of her teenage characters in a thoughtful and compassionate manner, while never shying away from the hard questions."
  • Michelle Landsberg, CBC Radio "Very beautifully written."
  • Toronto Star "The story seems to invite all young readers – LGBTQ or otherwise – into an imaginative space where love and anger, family troubles and bodily desire can safely be broached and discussed."
  • CM Magazine "Compelling . . . Maisie's internal struggles and inability to fully understand what is happening inside her, exacerbated by the unwillingness of adults to provide her with details about the realities of war and her father's condition, make Maisie a very relatable character, flawed and real."
  • Resource Links "Highly recommended."
  • Sarah Ellis, award-winning author of Outside In and Dodger Boy "This is Kit Pearson at the top of her game, leading us heart, line and sinker into a touching story of self-discovery."
  • Robin Stevenson, Stonewall Honor Award-winning author of Pride "Compelling, moving and utterly believable. . . . This is the book I needed when I was twelve. I am so glad it is finally here for all the kids who need it now."
  • Deborah Ellis, internationally bestselling author of The Breadwinner "A beautifully written story of the pains and joys of friendship and family, and of the glorious courage it takes to be truthful."
  • Hadley Dyer, award-winning author of Here So Far Away and Johnny Kellock Died Today "Every new Kit Pearson novel is an event, and she moves into new territory of the heart with this delicately rendered coming-of-age story, so tender and true."
