↏ free Hardcover Mercury ⠧ By Hope Larson ⡪ ↏ free Hardcover Mercury ⠧ By Hope Larson ⡪ Starred Review Grade 8 UpSet in Nova Scotia, this book relates two coming of age stories in tandem, showing how the past interweaves with the present In the present, Tara and her mother have lost their old farmhouse in a fire, and Tara s mother is struggling to support them from far away while Tara lives with relatives She loved the old house and wants to rebuild it, but her mother is pressured to find a job elsewhere In 1859, Josey, Tara s ancestor, falls in love with a gold dowser who has convinced her father to open a mine Her mother, who has supernatural sight, is sure that the dowser means no good The stories collide as Tara goes searching for the gold said to have been hidden on her property, and Josey s tale reveals how it came to be hidden Elements of the supernatural echo in both settings as Josey experiences the same visions her mother has and Tara discovers that she has a knack for dowsing Though the end of the story leaves things hanging for Tara and her mother, the actions that the girl takes to gain control of her destiny suggest that she will find a way to achieve her goals The storytelling, both in words and pictures, brilliantly offers details from Canadian history and modern life The dialogue varies from funny to poignant An excellent graphic novel, particularly for fans of Faith Erin Hicks s The War at Ellsmere Slave Labor, 2008.Alana Joli Abbott, James Blackstone Memorial Library, Branford, CT Copyright Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc All rights reserved.Starred Review Larson Chiggers, 2008 won an Eisner Award for Special Recognition in 2007 and is establishing an oeuvre of thoughtful, girl centric graphic novels that often feature touches of unobtrusive fantasy, lending a dreamy quality that helps characterize her distinctive storytelling style Mercury tells two tales one of Josey, who lives in a small Canadian town in 1859 and the other of her descendant, Tara, who has returned to the same town in 2009, a year after her house burned to the ground Tenth grader Taras burgeoning relationships and her difficulty reacclimating to her old school will be identifiable than Joseys forbidden courtship with itinerant prospector Asa, but the use of two time lines delineates the different eras outlooks on family and romance, which brings some immutable human truths into high relief The gentle dose of magic realism doesnt feel incongruous and underscores the powerful ways in which past touches present The insights unfold leisurely, but patient readers will find themselves deeply invested Comparisons to Craig Thompsons Blankets 2003 wouldnt be inappropriate, but Larson continues to perfect her own unique style and offers something the graphic format is sadly short on a coming of age story for girls Grades 9 12 Jesse Karp Mercury Marine Mercury Diesel engines offer a sophisticated diesel engine experience
