The Sea in Winter by Christine Day

“This meditative story about a middle school girl’s courageous journey toward healing follows a family as they navigate the complexities of supporting a tween’s life-changing injury. In her second novel, Day offers a heartening glimpse into the immense patience and love required to endure limitations, build strength, and repair damage. An insightful, stirring read about healing and resilience.”

I Can Make This Promise by Christine Day

American Indian Youth Literature Award Honor Book
Charlotte Huck Award Honor Book
School Library Journal Best Book

“Beyond the mystery, important themes resonate throughout, including cultural identity and what makes a friendship worth keeping. Day’s affecting novel also considers historical truths about how Native Americans have been treated throughout U.S. history, particularly underlining family separations.”

Christine Day (Upper Skagit) grew up in Seattle, nestled between the sea, the mountains, and the pages of her favorite books. Her debut novel, I Can Make This Promise, was an American Indian Youth Literature Award Honor Book and a Charlotte Huck Award Honor Book.
