Overview

Ivy doesn’t want to be a lawyer. Who cares? Well, her father, for starters, who expects his daughter to take up the Breedlove family profession with dedication and enthusiasm. But Ivy wants to be a historian, a vocation that’s getting quite a workout as she prepares a family history in honor of her beloved great-aunt Tib’s eightieth birthday. This undertaking takes Ivy on a great journey, as she hikes into the wilds of the Adirondacks to find her reclusive aunt Jo — and her own destiny.

Praise

Praise for Backwater

“Bauer’s characters crackle with eccentricity and exhibit glimmers of intense emotion.”–Publishers Weekly

Praise for Almost Home by Joan Bauer

“Sugar’s voice is convincing, both as storyteller and young writer; her natural good humor shines through what could be a sad story indeed. Quirky supporting characters—both human and dog—add to its appeal. Sugar…will win readers hearts.” —Kirkusstarred review

“Sure to inspire…” —Library Media Connectionstarred review
