At thirteen, Jenevieve has some life issues, some death issues, and some everything-in-between issues. Her mother is dead, she's an outcast at school, her dad's an idiot and her little brother can be pretty annoying. Aunt Guin, who appears to be a bit "reality challenged," turns up just in time to rescue J from a fate worse than death, summer camp. Aunt Guin and her friend Art take J to a decrepit beach-front house where J is expected to sleep outside, eat healthy food and help with the renovations. When she escapes to the nearby sand dunes, she meets a boy named Connor and joins him in his search for a mythical dance hall buried in the dunes.

For Jordann and also for Mum and Trish
Both financial and emotional support are necessary to take a book from idea to publication. I have my families, by blood and by marriage, to thank for helping to provide me with both.
I also need to thank the Toronto Arts Council for its support, and Lusiana Lukman for bringing the grant to my attention and believing in my writing. Special thanks to my mother-in-law, Bunny, for getting me to the grant office in the nick of time. I’d also like to thank the Self-Employment Benefits Program and all of its instructors for their support, advice and guidance. Thank you to everyone at Orca Book Publishers, especially my editor, Sarah Harvey, for her patience and dedication. Thank you also to my agents, David and Lynn Bennett, for taking me on and for their advice and encouragement. And finally, to my friends, who have always believed in me. Thank you.

Tosee a world in a grain of sand
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand
And eternity in an hour.
