Cathy Carr


Eleven year old Rigel Harman loves her life in the Alaskan wilderness. But when her parents divorce, she and her sisters have to move with their mother to the Connecticut suburbs. Rigel is upset but clings to the secret pact she made with her father: if she can stick it out in Connecticut for a year, he’ll bring her back home to Alaska. Unfortunately, this challenge isn’t easy, especially with the ups and downs of middle school life. Rigel’s loneliness finally lessens when she forges an unlikely friendship with a crow who needs her help. But when that friendship is threatened, Rigel realizes that she may need to let go of her old life and make her own place in the world—even if, for the time being, that place is in Connecticut.
