CROW COUNTRY



CROW COUNTRY - Kate Constable

Sadie is upset when her mother drags her from the city and all she knows to the small country town of Boort. She eventually makes friends with two very different boys, Walter who is strongly attached to the land and Lachie whose father wants to destroy it.

When Sadie finds herself travelling back in time, she soon learns that the past does not always stay in the past. With the help of Walter and Lachie, and the ever present crows, Sadie tries to right a very old wrong. Hoping that this will appease the spirits and change what she knows as history.

I liked how the novel wove the folklore of Waa the crow with the present, and how it makes us realise that the past always affects the present.
