Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.
First published in 1995, this novel is being re-released by House of Anansi this month. Quoting from the Chapters website:
Help Me, Jacques Cousteau presents the life and times of Hazel and her brother Andrew, who are born into an extraordinary family. Hazel's experiences, at once odd and completely believable, involve a diverse cast of family members who share only one thing: a penchant for eccentric behaviour. In this fascinating portrait of a dysfunctional family, Adamson demonstrates her powerful prose style, uniquely combining a scientist's loving attention to detail, a comic's unerring delivery, and a poet's sublime ear.
I think that must be the original cover. Seems dated and sort of a school-book version or perhaps small press-ish. But if this book is anything like The Outlander, I'm going to love it!
