Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
Eleven-year-old Harriet's mixed-media art is a source of wonder to her younger brother Irwin, but an unmitigated horror to the adults in her life. She plans to run away to Algonquin Park, and to fund her escape she runs errands for the seniors that live in the same apartment complex as her family. Determined, resourceful, and a little reckless, Harriet tries to navigate the clueless adults around her, searches for fuel for her art, and attempts to fathom her complicated feelings for Irwin, who suffers from hydrocephalus. Harriet is Irwin's compass, but he himself must untangle the web of the human heart.
