Dear Canada: Hoping For Home

Dear Canada: Hoping For Home

Stories of Arrival

In these eleven original stories, characters bravely face the challenges of settling into a new life.
Told in first-person narratives, this collection features a diverse cast of boys and girls, each one living at a different point in Canada''s vast landscape and history.

With unforgettable protagonists -- such as Miriam, a Warsaw-ghetto survivor, now reunited with her family in Montreal; Wong Joe-on, a young Chinese immigrant who faces racism in a small Saskatchewan town; and Insy, an Ojibwe girl who makes her first trip to a "white" town in Northern Ontario -- young readers will be moved by the opportunities and difficulties that these characters face, as each one ponders what it means to be Canadian, and struggles to fit in.
