Description

A moving new middle-grade novel from the Newbery Honor author of RULES. When Lucy's family moves to an old house on a lake, Lucy tries to see her new home through her camera's lens, as her father has taught her -- he's a famous photographer, away on a shoot. Will her photos ever meet his high standards? When she discovers that he's judging a photo contest, Lucy decides to enter anonymously. She wants to find out if her eye for photography is really special -- or only good enough. As she seeks out subjects for her photos, Lucy gets to know Nate, the boy next door. But slowly the camera reveals what Nate doesn't want to see: his grandmother's memory is slipping away, and with it much of what he cherishes about his summers on the lake. This summer, Nate will learn about the power of art to show truth. And Lucy will learn how beauty can change lives . . . including her own.

Professional reviews

"No sooner has LucyÕs family moved to a new home on the shores of a New Hampshire lake than her dad, a famous nature photographer, leaves on assignment. Narrator Maria CabezasÕs soothing, expressive voice allows listeners to connect with Lucy as she adjusts to a new home, new neighbors, and her fatherÕs absence. A boy named Nate, studying local loon activity, and capturing nature on film for a photo contest keep Lucy occupied. In a tone of compassion Cabezas conveys NateÕs relationship with his grandmother, the local loon expert, who is experiencing early onset dementia. This quiet, endearing story is told by Cabezas with sensitivity and warmth. M.F.T. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine"
