81 Major, Kevin HOLD FAST
Clarke, Irwin & Co. 1978 0772013144 / 9780772013149 Third Printing Softcover Very Good+ 
Excellent condition, clean and unmarked. Light edge and corner wear to cover, price sticker on rear. "Michael turned 14 in May. By June, both his parents have died, victims of a car crash. And for Michael, who has lived all his life in a small Newfoundland outport community, this means being suddenly uprooted and sent to live with relatives in St. Albert, hundreds of miles away. Hold Fast is the story of Michael's struggle in his new environment. In vivid prose, it depicts his fight against an array of enemies — loud-mouthed schoolmate Kenston, who ridicules his speech, and his uncle, who tries to rule his home life with an iron hand. It is also the story of the friendship that develops between Michael and Curtis, his cousin, and his uncertain new feelings for Brenda. " [223-osl] ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 170 pages

From a Reviewer: "Encourages Imagination Use, I'm happy to say that I now am able to read the same copy of this book to my own children that I myself once read as a child. Most appropriate for kids aged about 5 to 10 I'd say, though it can certainly appeal to kids outside that group as well. Three friends send bottles by sea with coded messages to each other and form a secret club. A good book for people who want their kids to develop an interest for imaginitive play and adventure, or as a precursor to books like the Hardy Boys series. Fun illustrations and large, easy-to-read print. Matobi!" (**Shipping will be reduced to all locations). ; 8vo
