“This engaging story of childhood summer adventure and real Pacific Northwest history will appeal to the whole family. Older brother Kell and his younger sister Grace are sent to visit their grandfather on one of the remote islands of the San Juans. It easily took me back to my summers with my brother exploring new and interesting places while unknowingly using our imaginations. Talented author Mark Holtzen tugs at our heartstrings with this coming of age story of Kell and his delightful young sister, all the while learning a bit of our local history along the way.”—Kathie, Eagle Harbor Book Company, Bainbridge Island.
