    1. I heard this novel was selected for the New Diversity Catalogue for teacher librarians and I totally understand why Ms Donaldson transforms you into a world of long ago when boys signed away five years of their lives to join the Hudson Bay Company hundreds of years ago I was completely intrigued and didn t want to stop reading There were plenty of twists and turns along the way that took me by surprise triumphs, yet also tragedies I m hooked on Ms Donaldson s novels.
