Sophie Sea to Sea
Winner of the British Columbia Year 2000 Book Award
Star Girl is a pint-sized superhero with gigantic appeal for 10-year-old Sophie, a French Canadian girl about to make a cross-Canada move with her family. In 1949, the year Newfoundland joins Confederation, Sophie soars over flooded prairies, dinosaur badlands, and the peaks of the Rockies. Each chapter is a snapshot of provincial history and an adventure in which she flies her cape, and the flag, in the name of Stars everywhere!
