Summer on the North Star

By Elsa Pedersen
Level 7

Mary McLain had a difficult decision to make. Mom was in the hospital, and Dad had to make money the only way he knew—crab fishing off the shores of the breathtaking Alaskan wilderness. Mary packed up the household things, and with her younger brother, she made a home on the boat—the North Star—working at the crab pots, cooking, and doing schoolwork by correspondence. Now her life is full of hard work, trials, mystery, and joy as she discovers a beautiful island and works hard to help her family clear their name and restore their livelihood as they go after the biggest catch of all—the mysterious crab pirate!
