Malou has just turned sixteen--hardly old enough to be out in the world on her own--and all she knows for sure is that she's of mixed race and that she was left at an orphanage as a newborn. When the orphanage burns to the ground, she finds out that she may have been born in a small town in Ontario's cottage country. Much to her surprise, Parry Sound turns out to have quite a few young brown faces, but Malou can't believe they might be related to her. After she finds work as a cleaner in the local hospital, an Aboriginal boy named Jimmy helps her find answers to her questions about her parents. The answers are as stunning--and life-changing--as anything Malou could have imagined back at the orphanage. Part of the SECRETS--a series of seven linked novels that can be read in any order.
