What can you find in a "Backwater?"

Backwater by Joan Bauer

Ivy Breedlove loves peace and quiet, which her family of aggressive lawyers don’t understand. Ivy embarks on an adventure in the town of “Backwater,” full of birds and her “hermit” aunt, Josephine. Ivy, on her quest to write the entire history of the Breedlove family in America, embarks in the middle of the winter up the mountain, with zany, aspiring how-to author and wilderness guide Mountain Mama. She meets a park-ranger-to-be, Jack, but her most life-changing experience is learning how to live and what she’s made of from her journey and her aunt’s perspective on life.
