Sailor GirlBook - 2008
Set on the cargo boats of Canada's Great Lakes in the summer of 1981, this novel follows the literal and figurative journey of Kate McLeod, a rebellious photography student looking to earn money for school. It is also a love story, in which a middle-class girl finds a deep connection with the unruly young men and toughminded women of the lakes. Life on the water is both brutally physical and socially restrictive, and Kate kicks against the rules, both written and unwritten.
