Bright Island by Mabel Robinson - ESSENTIAL

Robinson, Mabel Bright Island pg. 276 Yearling 2012 Language: (0 swears, 0 “f”); Mature Content-G; Violence: G;

Thankful lives on Bright Island where her mother and father taught her everything they could.  She was sent to the mainland to go to school; at first she hated it, but she learned that her grandfather paid her to go, and she found some good friends and classes that she liked.  She received a message that her mother was ill, she found a doctor to come with her to Bright Island.  

I thought that Thankful was a very independent young woman that loved the sea, but was forced to go to school by those around her.  It’s a Newberry Honor book.
