DescriptionIvy doesn't want to be a lawyer. Who cares? Well, her father, for starters, who expects his daughter to take up the Breedlove family profession with dedication and enthusiasm. But Ivy wants to be a historian, a vocation that's getting quite a workout as she prepares a family history in honor of her beloved great-aunt Tib's eightieth birthday. This undertaking takes Ivy on a great journey, as she hikes into the wilds of the Adirondacks to find her reclusive aunt Jo -- and her own destiny.

Praise for Backwater... "Bauer's characters crackle with eccentricity and exhibit glimmers of intense emotion."--Publishers Weekly Praise for Almost Home by Joan Bauer "Sugar's voice is convincing, both as storyteller and young writer; her natural good humor shines through what could be a sad story indeed. Quirky supporting characters--both human and dog--add to its appeal. Sugar...will win readers hearts." --Kirkus, starred review "Sure to inspire..." --Library Media Connection, starred review
