2011 book 19

Clare Vanderpool's Moon over Manifest
I actually hadn't even heard of this book until it won the Newbery Award last week, so thanks, award-givers, for bringing it to my attention! It's a perfectly lovely book where a 12 year old girl in 1936 is sent to the town where her dad spent time as a child, and she and two new friends try and uncover the town's twenty-year-old mysteries with the help of a fortuneteller, a reporter, and a bootlegger. Totally awesome. A.
