Nobody asked me / Elizabeth Brochmann. - Toronto : Lorimer, 1984. - 182 p. ; 21 cm.

For most of her life, thirteen-year-old Rachel has lived with her parents on an isolated forestry station in the middle of Vancouver Island. She has never had friends, never known life outside the station and what she has read in books and magazines.

So when she learns that she will have to spend the summer with relatives in a village on the coast, she is curious...and scared. With her warm, secure world turned upside-down, Rachel tries to create a set of stepparents by matching up her eccentric Uncle Sharky and sensible "Aunt" Ev. But after she meets her new friend Bosko, her desparate need for a family begins to change.

Nobody Asked Me is a touching story about a girl who learns that real-life love is a complicated thing, not always like the romance she's read in books.
