Acadian Star

(2008)
A novel by

 
The Acadian Star Competition is the biggest thing to ever happen in Meg Gallant's small town. Meg dreams of performing onstage with her best friend, Neve. If they're lucky, they might even make it to the finals. But Meg's weird old aunt, Tante Perle, has been acting stranger and stranger-and just before the finale of the competition, she whisks Meg away from everything she knows. Meg suddenly finds herself trapped in the time of the tragic Acadian Deportation and she has to choose between escaping to her own time and saving a girl who looks remarkably like Neve. Why is she trapped in the eighteenth century? Will she be able to save this stranger? This remarkable book for middle readers introduces us to contemporary Acadian characters and also offers a young girl's perspective on the Acadian Deportation and the Cajun people of Louisiana.

Helene Boudreau is an Acadian writer and artist. She writes fiction and non-fiction for children and young adults from her home in Ontario. This is her debut novel.
