Rose lives in Halifax during 1917 and hates school. She is great at telling stories from her grandma's Irish Chain quilt but it takes her three hours just to write a sentence down on paper. Because of this she has been held back a few years in school and if she is held back one more year she will be in the same class as her little sister Winnie! Then the explosion happens and Rose blames herself. Will Rose's life ever be the same again?

I have a bit of advice for any potential author who is planning on entering our Grade 5/6 Writing Contest this year. Do your research! The theme this year is animals, tame or wild. Whether you intend to write about your pet lizard or about a fictitious creature of your imagination who flies on wings of velvet - do the work, create the picture in our minds, make it real.
The Guardians of Ga'Hoole series has graciously agreed to be one of the judges for the writing contest, and I have just finished the advance reader's copy of her upcoming novel Hawksmaid. She has done a very thorough and well researched job with this novel and her attention to detail is marvelous., the popular author of Categories: Reviews
