Really cute book about a girl who washes up on an island in a boat as a baby. Her father, Osh, is a sweetheart and a good male role model. It’s giving Pictures of Hollis Woods.

Gr 4 Up—When Ellie and her family move to the mountains of Maine after suffering significant losses during the
Great Depression, Ellie's father is injured in an accident and becomes comatose. With natural skill, the protagonist
steps up to help her family, but conflict boils. Ellie tries myriad cures for her father to no avail, until she meets Cate,
a "hag" who is herself gravely injured. Subtle supernatural elements tint this rich, historical novel about family
relationships, friendships, and finding your own power.… (més)

This book was subtle but beautiful. The writing is very good, and although I have seen reviews that suggest this might be more of a kids book for grown-ups than for kids, as a grown-up, it got me.
I loved the relationships between the adoptive father and the daughter and the local friend. This was a very place centered book, and I liked feeling like I was visiting a timeless feeling Massachusetts islands.

Another winner from Lauren Wolk.

I definitely see how the main characters in Wolf Hollow correlate to the main characters in this. You have the bully, the hermit, the wise woman, and the precocious young heroine. But I don't think this is a repeat of Wolf Hollow at all. The setting, the plot, and the themes are substantially different. Sure, Wolk seems to be very interested in writing about men who have given up on society, especially the connection these isolated (by choice) men might find with a child who can draw them back in a bit. And, sure, both stories have a ruthless villain driving the plot. But I think the similarities end there.

This book surprised me in a lot of ways. I thought Crow was a boy until page 25 or so. I thought certain details about the characters would be revealed, but they never were, and I realized I didn't really need to know (e.g. Osh's and Crow's parents' origins). I thought the plot would hinge on finding treasure, but it really hinges on what happens after the treasure. It's not really about finding the treasure or discovering certain facts about the characters. It's about the impact these things have on a person. I was struck by how, at the end of the book, Crow and Osh and their life seem pretty unchanged. But, of course, they have both changed in important ways. Finding out about her biological parents has changed the way Crow sees Osh. That last line of the book killed me. "Osh means father." My heart swelled!

I was so into this book that I actually bought a copy when I couldn't finish my library copy in time (it was a library ebook, so it cruelly disappeared from my reader when the due date came). I work in a public library every day, so I don't spend a lot of money on books. But this was worth it.
