Description - The Mitochondrial Curiosities of Marcels 1 to 19 by Jocelyn Brown
Biology is not Dree's thing. Equally heinous are English, social studies, her sister and mother, not to mention Edmonton in general. Toronto's upcoming Renegade Craft Fair is where she belongs. On her 15th birthday, she will get the special fund her father promised, and be on Westjet Flight 233 to Toronto. Instead, her dad has a fatal heart attack, and all she finds are clues leading to the ominous Alberta Psychiatric Hospital where her parents once worked. As Dree tries to unearth a mystery, and still pass science, she keeps searching for the money, and for a way to grieve her father.Told in a fresh, frank voice, "The Mitochondrial Curiosities of Marcels 1 to 19" is a wry, adventurous, unflinching look at the trials of teenage life. Instructions for renegade crafts are included.
