Becca at Sea


Product Description
Product Details


Gr 4-6-This is an episodic novel about 10-year-old Becca's adventures while staying with her grandmother on a small island off British Columbia. Gran is used to living on her own and doing everything her way, from Scrabble rules to mulching her garden. She is seemingly one rough, gruff character, but as Becca (and readers) spend more time with her, she becomes a person who can learn and change. So does her granddaughter. In the first chapter, the two go oyster hunting at night and Becca finds 17 tiny pearls in one shell. Other adventures involve cousins, the island's only plumber, and the fire department. On several occasions, Becca is the cool head in a sea of panic. From a timid girl who can't understand why anyone would want to live there year-round, she develops into a preteen confident enough to swim with her cousins all the way around an island. Becca also gains a better understanding of, and love for, her extended family. This book has some of the same feel as Jeanne Birdsall's The Penderwicks (Knopf, 2005). It's a fun, old-fashioned family story that might have Becca "all at sea" at first, but the ending shows that she's a good little sailor on life's oceans.-Elaine Lesh Morgan, Multnomah County Library, Portland, OR Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.
