Book Review, Middle Grade Fiction

Bigfoot Mountain by Roderick O’Grady

Connection with nature and respect for life in the wild is central to this story of love and healing. Twelve-year-old Minnie lives in remote North American mountains with her stepfather Dan. Since her mother passed away, life just hasn’t been the same and she hasn’t been able to shake the feeling of loss that threatens to overwhelm her.

One day, she and her friend, Billy, discover four giant footprints. They can’t have been made by a human and they’re unlike any animal prints they’ve every seen. Could they have been made by a Sasquatch – the legendary Bigfoot who is said to roam the mountains?

Told from a dual point of view, this story examines the perspectives of a young girl trying to make sense of life and a group of magnificent creatures who find their ancient paths blocked by a development of cabins. As they struggle to understand each other, can they discover what it is that connects them all?
