Whispering Alaska

It’s been four months since their mother died. Twins Nicky and Josie and their father have moved from Pennsylvania to a small town in Alaska to be near extended family. The sisters find the wilderness mysterious and beautiful, and a much-needed refuge. The girls drifted apart somewhat during their transition, each dealing with grief in a different way. Now, as they settle into a new normal, they become involved in a community debate that threatens the very land they are growing to love: an upcoming vote about clear-cutting the nearby forest.

For the local adults, livelihoods are at stake, and tensions are high. But it’s the young people who take the lead, especially newcomers Josie and Nicky, who find a way to speak up for what they believe, reconnecting with each other and with their father in the process — and, they hope, doing their mother proud. Will their heartfelt plea keep the peace and save the trees that have existed for hundreds of years? Author Brendan Jones’s passion for Alaska shines through in his debut middle-grade novel that celebrates the beauty of nature and the importance of conservation.
