9781554551699: No Small Victory

It’s the Hungry Thirties and Bonnie’s family has been hit hard by the Depression, and relocated to Lang, Ontario. The move is supposed to give them a fresh start, but a swath of new challenges rises to meet them as they adapt to their new surroundings. For Bonnie, settling into her new school is an uphill battle, but a series of small victories soon sets Bonnie on a path of success. When disaster strikes and her family’s last hope, a small clutch of chicks, is trampled by a rampaging sow after a storm blows their shed door open, Bonnie enters a regional spelling bee in the hopes that the cash prize will be enough to replace the lost chicks and save her family.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

"Eat up, Bonnie. You're too thin. You need all the strength you can get."

"Sorry, Mum. I'm just not hungry anymore!" Bonnie looked down at the blob of mashed turnips and the fried fish parry on her plate.

"It doesn't matter whether you're hungry or not. You need to eat."

"Please, Mum, couldn't we have something else besides suckerballs and turnips? Maybe an orange once in a while?"

The minute she said the word "orange," Bonnie knew it was a mistake.

"Oranges are expensive," said Dad. "We simply can't afford them."

Book Description FITZHENRY WHITESIDE, United States, 2010. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. It s the Hungry Thirties and Bonnie s family has been hit hard by the Depression. Relocating from their farm in Massasaga to Lang, Ontario, is supposed to give them a fresh start. But Lang soon presents its own set of challenges for Bonnie and her family as they learn to adapt to their new surroundings - and get by with less. For Bonnie, settling into her new school is an uphill battle. Still, in spite of an unsympathetic teacher and a few malicious schoolyard bullies, a series of small victories soon sets Bonnie onto a new path of success. After a devastating scarlet fever epidemic, a head-lice infestation, and a skating incident gone dangerously wrong, Bonnie s classmates soon realize that this spirited newcomer has more than enough gumption and courage to become an invaluable member of their community. On the home front, Bonnie s family must be resourceful if they are going to put food on the table. Their hopes rest on a precious clutch of chickens carefully hatched in their living room and then sheltered in an outdoor shed. Disaster strikes when the shed door blows open in a storm and their young chickens are trampled by a stampeding sow. At the urging of her new friends, Bonnie enters a regional spelling bee in the hopes that the cash prize will be enough to replace the lost poultry and save her family.
