Canadian Children's Fiction

Finished October 26
A Very Fine Line by Julie Johnston
Rosalind Kemp is the youngest of several sisters and lives in a small town in Ontario. She is a bit of a tomboy as well as an artist and is trying to find her own place in the world when she encounters her gift of second sight. When she finds out her family history of clairvoyance from a maiden aunt, she works hard to escape the gift that has apparently been given her.
Ros is a girl who keeps to herself. She is close to her cousin Corny (Cornelius) who is near her own age, and her older sister Marietta, but doesn't have friends around girls her own age. She likes to draw, but her drawings don't always appeal to others.
She eventually finds that she must face her whole self to move forward with her life. This is a good story for tweens and young teens.
