Once in a Town Called Moth

Trilby Kent

Tundra Books, Ages 12+

A NOVEL about a 14-year-old girl plucked from her strict Mennonite colony in the Bolivian jungle and plunked into a new life in downtown Toronto could easily overplay its hand and make an easy meal of the shock and wonder in the girl’s eyes.
