just finished--had never heard of Julie Roorda--pretty good YA novel, very believable & likeable child narrator, loved that it was set in a place really familiar (I attended Gr. 11 & 12 at TDCH in Woodbridge, and remember trips during spares down Woodbridge Ave. and hanging out at the monument), and the main characters are Dutch CRC folk! that's my background!
