Shelter, by Frances Greenslade.

Shelter first, that’s what Maggie’s father taught her, beginning with building bough-based lean-to structures in the Canada woods.  Her beloved father dies when she is 10 and shortly thereafter her mother leaves, never to return.  Maggie and older sister Jenny spend years moving, or being moved, from “shelter” to “shelter” until they can create a permanent one of their own, meant to last.
