Middle Grades

Tarragon Island

Sono Nis Press, $6.95

Heather Blake can’t believe her bad luck when her family moves from Toronto to tiny Tarragon Island on the West Coast. What will she, a budding author, write about on this rock in the middle of nowhere? Heather’s mother is too busy getting established as the local veterinarian and her father too obsessed with his new sailboat for either of them to pay much attention to her predicament. But with a writer’s creativity, Heather finds herself planning a brilliant escape.

Nikki Tate writes with verve, humour, and absolute authenticity of twelve-year-old Heather’s life-in-transition. Nothing stays the same as Heather’s understanding of her island world widens and deepens. Insightful, gentle, a pleasure to read, and wise in its portrayal of Heather’s determination to become a writer.” — Marilyn Bowerin
