Je ne pouvais pas m'emp?cher d'?tre ?merveill?e en m'imaginant la force et la t?nacit? des premiers colons. ? propos du roman Entr?e refus?e, elle a d?clar?: ?

She is particularly noted for her books about World War II and the Holocaust, such as Lisa (winner of The Geoffrey Bilson Award for Historical Fiction for Young Readers), Jesper (a Mr. Christie Honour Book), Daniel's Story (shortlisted for the Governor General's Literary Award and winner of the Silver Birch Award), and After the War (winner of the Jewish Book Award).

She lives with her family in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
