Bristol Bay Summer

Bristol Bay Summer

by Annie Boochever

Against the backdrop of the great Bristol Bay salmon fishery, thirteen-year-old Zoey Morley struggles with her parents’ divorce, her mom’s bush-pilot boyfriend, and the pangs of growing up during her summer in the “real” Alaska. Author Annie Boochever tells a compelling tale of a divided family living a remote lifestyle where getting along as a team is a matter of survival. Zoey learns to trust the artist inside her and finds she and her new friend Thomas have something in common. Readers will live the lessons learned and taught by this young girl who finds that hard work, compassion, and the ability to see things in her own special way lead her toward happiness in a place that at first seems just too far away. (Bristol Bay is the world’s largest salmon fishery. Includes a map of Western Alaska and a glossary of colloquial expressions and fishing terms. Offers a rare glimpse into an Alaskan fishing village’s way of life.)
