After her mother dies, fourteen year old Zoe is whisked away to Newfoundland to live with a father she has never met.

In the tiny village of Port au Choix, she gets caught up in solving the mystery of finding the habitation site of the Maritime Archaic Indian, an ancient culture that lived in the area more than four thousand years ago. At the same time, Zoe has her own mystery to solve. Going through her mother’s journals, she discovers secrets that baffle and confuse her. Could Zoe’s life have been nothing more than an elaborate lie?


“This contemporary family drama ultimately proves to be equal parts mystery. Young readers will appreciate Zoe’s feelings of isolation and abandonment as she is shipped off to these newly discovered relatives, her fears and apprehensions about starting at a new school and going on a first date, and her feeling of betrayal when she learns the full truth…an interesting tale of family and self-discovery.”
