Reviewed by Melissa, Age 13

Thirteen-year old Marcie Chisholm is still trying to get used to the fact that her mother has been dead for four years. She is still trying to accept the fact that her father is making her go to Montreal, back to where the accident happened. She has been living in Toronto, since they had moved out of her old house. There were too many memories in Montreal. Yet now, her dad wants her to go there for the summer!
 
This novel stirred up many feelings. It was jam-packed with emotion, and other adventures. Marcie is thirteen-years old, which makes it even easier for me to relate to. Goodwin is pretty good at capturing some of the ways a real teenager might act and feel. I would recommend this book for eleven years and up.

A short, but effective novel, that gets four out of five stars. I deducted one star for two reasons. One was because I found it boring in some places and the second reason, a small pet peeve of mine, is the words  ‘Omigosh’. I hate it when an author slurs ‘Oh My Gosh’ into 'Omigosh'. It just annoys me. I can’t stand that! All in all, Seeking Shelter was a good read.
