Bailey Finch Takes a Stand

Author(s): Ingrid Laguna

Middle Fiction

Bailey's mum had always said that being by the creek with Bailey and her dad was as good as it gets. She had shown Bailey sap glistening on tree trunks.

They had crouched together to nudge a beetle onto a leaf. They had sat on the creek's edge with their bare feet in the water. It's one year since Bailey's mum died. And her dad doesn't seem to care much about anything. But Bailey still spends afternoons by the creek with her dog, Sheba. Until Sheba gets sick--very sick--from something she must have swallowed while swimming in the creek.

And Bailey notices all the rubbish polluting the waterway. Between visits to Sheba in the vet hospital, Bailey tries to find a way to make the creek safe for Sheba and other animals. And through her unexpected friendship with Israel, a quiet boy who knows about endangered species, Bailey Finch finds the courage to take a stand.

Bailey Finch Takes a Stand is a moving story about love and loss, about caring for the environment and standing up to make change happen.

Ingrid Laguna is a writer and teacher. Bailey Finch Takes a Stand is her fourth book She lives in Melbourne.
