Book Trailer: Eliza’s Journal

Eliza’s Journal

Written by Caelyn AB Williams and illustrated by Katie Green

This beautifully illustrated YA novel tells the story of one teenage girl’s summer of mystery and self-discovery on Orcas Island.

Eliza Wolcott has been sent by her parents to live with her aunt and uncle for the summer on the small community of Orcas Island off the mainland of Washington State. What she imagines to be a fun-in-the-sun vacation quickly turns into a season of assuming responsibility as she is forced by her uncle to get a summer job. Eliza uses her talent as an artist and applies to be a “natural history illustrator” for the local eccentric Orville Tanner. She documents her time on the island by writing and drawing in her journal, which is the format of the novel itself. Pen and ink illustrations add to the mystery and beauty of this debut book by author Caelyn AB Williams.
