IL 5-8, RL 6.6
April 18, 1906, an earthquake shook San Francisco, changing the lives of
two girls forever. Kate Keely is an orphan who lives with a poor
older aunt. She has to quit high school to support herself and her aunt.
Jolie Logan is recovering from an almost fatal case of scarlet fever.
She lost her mother in a freak accident during the earthquake. Kate
is hired as a companion for Jolie. Kate is a combination of maid, nurse,
and friend. Jolie’s father decides to send the two girls to Ireland,
a long and exhausting trip by sea. How will this journey effect the
way the girls see each other, and the world? Will these girls be
fast friends forever? (Jean Bellavance email@example.com
