This is the first Dear Canada diary I can remember reading. I even did a book review on it. This book is sad, but I am proud that Charlotte never stopped looking for her brother, even though the rest of her family had been killed.

This was my favourite Dear Canada book for years. It has been pushed to second by To Stand on My Own, but it is a great read. I highly recommend it!
