    One thought on “The Hungry Year”

    1. Kate's mother died four years ago in childbirth, and just recently, her grandmother died as well.

Although she is just twelve years old, all the responsibility of keeping house and caring for the four-year-old twins, Ryan and Alex, falls to Kate. The new home their father builds for them in Canada is a far cry from th [...]

    3. Life is difficult so far, for Kate, the twins, and their father, especially when their mother and grandmother had died. Now, they have to find a new land and build a house.

Kate is only 12 but since her mother died four years ago, she has taken the role of mother to her two young brothers. Her [...]

    5. The Hungry Year is about a 12-year-old Kate, her twin brothers (Alex and Ryan) and her Father, and how they survive Canada's winter. Her Father is gone to get new supplies, he hasn't been home in the last month. Bobcat (her pet cat) went out hunting for food every single day. Will her Father come back? How will she survive the winter without Father?
