365 Days to Alaska

Coming from Abrams Books in January 2021


Rigel Harman loves her life in the Alaskan wilderness with her parents and two sisters. She can shoot and field-dress a snowshoe hare, split a mountain of wood, talk to ravens, and do advanced math in her head—but she has no clue about life outside the bush. When her parents’ divorce prompts a cross-country move, Rigel finds her survival skills useless against a boring suburban landscape, stuck-up classmates, and the pain of separation from her beloved father, Bear. Sure, her new home has hot showers and book-filled libraries, but those things don’t make up for the school bullies who make fun of her old clothes and her mother’s housekeeping job.


Rigel needs a whole new set of skills to thrive in this environment. But she’d rather cling to Bear’s vow to bring her back to Alaska and bond with her one Connecticut friend, a dumpster-diving crow named Blueberry. When Blueberry goes missing and Bear starts breaking promises, an unexpected cascade of events forces Rigel to confront the splinters in her family and face up to her own uncertain future.
