365 Days to Alaska [9781419743801]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
A thoughtful middle-grade debut about a girl from off-the-grid Alaska adjusting to suburban life

Eleven-year-old Rigel Harman loves her life in off-the-grid Alaska. She hunts rabbits, takes correspondence classes through the mail, and plays dominoes with her family in their two-room cabin. She doesn't mind not having electricity or running water-instead, she's got tall trees, fresh streams, and endless sky.
But then her parents divorce, and Rigel and her sisters have to move with their mom to the Connecticut suburbs to live with a grandmother they've never met. Rigel hates it in Connecticut. It's noisy, and crowded, and there's no real nature. Her only hope is a secret pact that she made with her father: If she can stick it out in Connecticut for one year, he'll bring her back home.
At first, surviving the year feels impossible. Middle school is nothing like the wilderness, and she doesn't connect with anyone . . . until she befriends a crow living behind her school. And if this wild creature has made a life for itself in the suburbs, then, just maybe, Rigel can too.
365 Days to Alaska is a wise and funny debut novel about finding beauty, hope, and connection in the world no matter where you are-even Connecticut.

AUTHOR: Cathy Carr grew up in Wisconsin, where a steady supply of her dad's stories about his Alaskan adventures sparked her interest in the forty-ninth state. A former copy editor, library clerk, and technical writer, she now lives in New Jersey with her family and writes fiction.
