Peggy´s Cove könnte ich mir gut vorstellen als Rückzugsort.

Peggy´s Cove könnte ich mir gut vorstellen als Rückzugsort. Natürlich erst Abends, wenn die Zeit für perfekte Fotos vorbei ist. Alles in allem war es eine Geschichte über das Dilemma eines Kindes, das seinen Vater nicht verlieren möchte und sich in seiner Hilflosigkeit, alle möglichen Dinge ausdenkt. Ryan kann ich als Hauptaktionist sehr gut verstehen. Der Autor bringt diese innere Zerissenheit sehr gut rüber. Einerseits möchte er seinen Vater haben, andererseits aber doch etwas Erleben. Mein Fazit: Die Erzählung über einen Jungen, die deutlich macht, wie sehr er seine Familie braucht.

Peggy' s Cove is all right, Ryan thinks, if it weren' t so small and crowded with tourists. The descriptive telling of everyday life in the famous village of Peggy's Cove and the struggle of the locals to deal with the tourists is great. Still, he manages to make friends. The young boy in the story realizes what is important in life thorugh a litany of realistic and off the wall characters. Definitly one for the shopping basket.

When Ryan's dad runs away from home because of the change of life, Ryan is sent to spend the summer with his aunt in Peggy's Cove. He goes fishing, almost gets into big trouble and learns a lot about tourist behavior, but most of all he misses his dad and hopes he'll come back soon.

Peggy s Cove is all right, Ryan thinks, if it weren t so small and crowded with tourists. First, he befriends Drummer, a misfit. But hanging out with Drummer proves disastrous because it makes him behave in ways he never has before and gets him into trouble. Next, he finds friendship with fishermen Eddie and Wing Ding, who teach him how to fish. The time he spends with the two fishermen is the best moments of his visit. Even so, he still thinks of his father a lot and writes him a letter in hopes of getting his attention

I ordered this book because some years ago I saw a short subject on

a cable channel by that name, recorded it, and thoroughly enjoyed it. As

I work with children and youths, I have shared it with many of my clients.

The book is quite good, and of course far more detailed than the 24

minute video. It is quite similar to the video in the ground it covers,

until the last part of the book. The video ends with the youth at a crossroads in his life, seemingly having decided to go fishing with the

positive adult role models, rather than rip-off the tourists with his

delinquent friend. The book goes on to a different ending where the youth

performs a heroic deed. I actually preferred the video ending.

Really good book of a young boy growing up during a summer on Peggy's Cove. Very insightful, sensitive and touching. Held my interest throughout.

This book was very descriptive but also very sad. A story that I recommend for people who in their early years had fathers. Others may be very emotional in the long or short process of reading it.
