Set in Canada’s East Coast, this novel from the award-winning and prolific Lesley Choyce grapples with current environmental issues as experienced by two teenagers.
“As with all his young adult books, Big Burn features a strong plot, some conflicts, and a resolution that isn’t glib. And there’s that unmistakable gusto for the great outdoors; lots of wind, sun, rocks, ocean and scenery.” Halifax Chronicle Herald.
