Twelve-year-old Fredricka O’Reilly has a dark secret. It’s 1967 in the last frontier—Alaska, and the truth keeps the normal happy life she longs for just beyond her reach. Her brother’s four-year stint in the Air Force ends, and Fredricka believes his return will change her life for the better, until he reveals a secret of his own. As her life crumbles around her, the only one left to turn to is her mother. Can Fredricka risk telling her secret even if it could tear her family apart?
“Heartwarming and heartbreaking, Secrets Under the Midnight Sun is a whimsical and haunting story about secrets: the causes, the effects, and the fears that give them strength. Freddie’s charm, joy, and courage make her a memorable and fun character. I hated to see the book end, wondering what would happen to Freddie next.”
