When Lucy moves to a lakeside house in New Hampshire, her photographer father leaves for a summer assignment. He'll judge a photography contest for youth in a few months, and Lucy wants to win. As the summer progresses, Lucy gets to know the neighbor boy, watches loons, and hones her photography skills. Questions of relationship and ethics, creativity and discernment, this coming of age story is quietly powerful. Deeply enjoyable. By a Newbery Honor author.
