The Sea in Winter

The Sea in Winter

by Christine Day

It's been a hard year for Maisie Cannon ever since she tore her ACL and her dreams of dancing ballet professionally were put on hold. Her blended family is loving and supportive, but Maisie knows they just can't understand how hopeless she feels. She is not excited for their family midwinter road trip near the Makah community where her mother grew up. Soon, Maisie's anxieties and dark moods start to hurt as much as the pain in her knee. How can she keep pretending to be strong when on the inside she feels as roiling and cold as the ocean? An evocative and heartwarming chapter book for middle grade readers about healing and resilience.
