Becca At Sea (2007), by Deirdre Baker

A lovely and refreshing story of life on an island with an eccentric grandmother.  Deirdre Baker’s descriptions rival L. M. Montgomery’s, without being so saccharine.  The story is simple and episodic, but true to the feelings of a young girl about to have a new baby brother or sister, who is shunted off to her grandmother, whom she loves but at times does not get along with.  It is a fabulous portrayal of how we can both love and be upset with our family, and how our fluctuating superficial feelings do not infringe upon our deeper appreciation of family.
