In this dark and moving young adult novel, sixteen-year-old Naomi's best friend has moved away, and Naomi herself is starting at a new high school. Curtis, the artistic guy she likes, seems to be avoiding her, making her feel alone and lonely. On top of lots of difficult homework and an awful part-time job, she also has problems at home. Her dying aunt has come to live with her family, Naomi's mother seems to be on the verge of a breakdown, and her Polish father is absent and unsupportive. How can Naomi overcome all these negatives in her life? Over three harrowing months on the eve of the new millennium, the story emerges of a young woman finding strength and of a broken family mending. The action and circumstances of the book are laid bare in a series of diary entries, not only by Naomi, but also by her boyfriend, her mother, her mothers boyfriend, and Naomi's employer, giving the reader a much fuller understanding of what brings Naomi and her mother to the brink of despair - and back

Who were the Whiteoaks and where was Jalna? : an investigation into the sources of the Jalna novels of Mazo de la Roche by Heather Kirk( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Heather Kirk offers new sources for the fictional Whiteoak family in the world-famous Jalna novels by Canadian author Mazo de la Roche. The Whitesoaks were modelled on an ingenious combination of close relatives of de la Roche and her cousin and life-long companion Caroline Clement. What's more, the Whiteoak's estate, Jalna, was based on a combination of several large properties owned by these relatives in York and Simcoe counties. For the sources of the Whiteoaks and Jalna, biographers would have looked beyond Halton County where de la Roche and Clement lived for a few years when they were in their thirties. They also should have looked beyond Peel County where de la Roche and Clement stayed for a few seasons when they were in their forties. De la Roche's knowledge of rural life came primarily from the people and places of her childhood and youth
