Topic: Lightfinder by: Aaron Paquette
I just started the book light finder and already so many things are happening. So far the book is about this girl named Aisling and she’s a young Cree girl that’s 16, and she just moved in with her dad in Fort Mac. She had to leave her brother at her mom's house, and her mom is a drunk now that’s why the dad left her. In the book, it keeps saying that her Kokum is gone but it never said she died so I’m a little suspicious. Her younger brother that’s 12 and named Eric is being bullied and is mad that Aisling left him with their mother. Eric is small and skinny so Tommy and his friends would pick on him. I was really mad at their mom because when Eric came home with a black eye she didn’t even care she just stayed outside drinking. Then it was back to Aisling and it was her first day of school, the book starts it off where she went to her music class and she had to say in front of the whole class. First, she was really scared and nervous (I mean I wouldn’t even think about singing in front of people by myself) and when she opened her mouth her throat tightened and her voice cracked. I felt so bad for her, but then she saw this guy that gave her a peace sign and made her laugh. She started singing and it was really good (why do all stories have to always about a girl liking a guy, why can’t it just be about the storyline). Then Aisling sat down looked at the sheet music then all of a sudden she fell unconscious.
