Brandie (commonthistle) | 13 comments Honestly, I think there are more books that I've forgotten than what I remember...This one I read in the early 80's, I think, and it wasn't very old. The main character is a girl, I think overweight and picked on, and she runs away. She ends up on some little island, I'm pretty sure it takes place just off the Canadian coast. She has to learn how to survive there, get super healthy, I think she goes back in the end? Does anyone know this one?

Catherine (spacecatherine) Oh how obnoxious. I found this book on the rack in my fifth grade classroom. She went to some island where her family had a cabin, but the cabin had burned down. And she ate what she found on the island and got sick one time. Can't remember the name of the book though. That just kills me that I feel certain I know what you're talking about, but can't place the title.
