Louisa, a passionate middle school violinist, is sent to the Tasmanian forest (from Canada) to live with her uncle, a naturalist. Despite the disruption to her practice schedule, she discovers the joy learning about new species and even makes a new friend. Species extinction and deforestation are the backdrop to Louisa’s participation in a family secret that also begins to heal her. Fascinating and full of compassion, this book is a joy.
