Riassunto: Dangerous intruders threaten to destroy the secluded beaver pond which is Jill's only refuge from her many problems.
From School Library Journal:
Grade 6-8 In a blend of first love and ecological interest that is reminiscent of Nancy Bond's The Voyage Begun (Atheneum, 1981), Jill, almost 14, is spending the summer with her mother in Vermont, where the family has vacationed for years. This summer, however, is different. Jill's sister stays in the city, and Jill's parents are having marital problems. The tranquility of a beaver pond, secret retreat for Jill and her friend Migan, is threatened by Jeep, a volatile friend of Migan's aunt, who wants to clear the beaver from the pond. An elaborate plan to save the beavers goes astray. In the end, Carly, an alcoholic, blows up the beaver dam, and Jill almost drowns in the rushing water. There is too much dependence on chance, luck and destiny for the story to work, and the book raises more issues than it resolves. Jill's budding relationship with a schoolmate is nicely explored, and Migan comes alive as the devilish risk-taker. Yet too much works out conveniently in the end, and it seems to take longer than the two weeks of the story's time frame to read it. Therese Bigelow, Hampton Public Library, Va.
