Louisa is headed from her home in Toronto all the way to Tasmania to spend the summer with her eccentric uncle. All she ants to do is practice her violin to prepare for her audition with the Toronto Symphony Youth Orchestra.  Now she is surround by strange animals, strange people, in strange circumstances. She’s back where her mother grew up, but Louisa doesn’t know if being here will help her connect to her mother. And there is a mystery out in the bush – a final farewell her uncle needs to make to an elusive wild creature before the camp he has lived at for his whole life is demolished in the name of progress.

Louisa’s story is not as poignant as Kadarusman’s Girl of the Southern Sea. It is definitely interesting, especially for those who like reading fiction from around the world.
