Becca at Sea by Deirdre Baker Ten-year-old Becca spends two summers and even a winter at Gran's island cottage. She has many adventures both large and small - digging for oysters, witnessing a wild herring run, making blackberry jelly, dealing with bossy cousins. There's also time for sailing, swimming, gardening and Scrabble. Through it all, we see Becca growing and maturing and having wishes come true. A wonderful summertime read.
