Beschreibung

In Spite of Killer Bees is a novel about not giving in and not giving up. Aggie and her two sisters have had to move to the small village that had been their father's childhood home. Their mother is long gone, and their father - who'd been in and out of prison - has died. Although the village holds little charm for the girls, they have hopes. It seems that their late grandfather has made them heiresses.

In the small, judgmental village, Aggie must fight to keep her diminishing family together. By refusing to abandon those she loves and comes to love, she risks more than her happiness.

Portrait

Born and raised in Smiths Falls, in the Ottawa Valley, Julie Johnston began writing plays in high school for her classmates. Her first published work was a short novel, which was published in serial form in the local paper. She returned to creating plays in the 1970s and this time focused on younger audiences, writing works her own children could perform. At the same time, she decided to try her hand at something more serious and entered a one-act composition in the Canadian Playwriting Competition, taking first prize.

A dexterous author who is comfortable writing drama, short stories and novels, she has garnered great success with her first two young adult novels, Adam and Eve and Pinch-Me and Hero of Lesser Causes, both of which won the Governor General's Literary Award for Text in Children's Literature and received numerous awards and accolades throughout North America.

In her long-awaited third novel, The Only Outcast, Julie takes readers back to the turn-of-the-century and into a summer of mystery, adventure and passion for sixteen-year-old Frederick at a summer cottage on the Rideau. The book was a finalist for the 1998 Governor General's Literary Award and the Ruth Schwartz Children's Book Award.

For Love Ya Like A Sister, Julie acted as editor, compiling the letters, journals, and e-mail correspondence of Katie Ouriou, a Calgary teen who died suddenly while living in Paris with her family. Katie's messages to her friends back home in Canada are full of love, spiritual inspiration and demonstrate the strength that exists in the bonds of friendship.

In Spite of Killer Bees examines the bonds between three sisters and their eclectic extended family in a small town.

The mother of four grown daughters, Julie Johnston and her husband reside in Peterborough.
