CBCA Notables 2023. Alberta Bracken is facing a very different summer. At 11 years old, she never thought she’d be stuck with a broken arm and unable to go boogie boarding, that her dad would be kicked out of the house by her mum when his bad behaviour was discovered and her friends are acting weird too! Luckily, her friend and budding filmmaker Mikki Watanabe invites her to make nature documentaries about trees, and through their involvement, they discover that their beloved trees are not long for this world – can they save them?
