Description
The 2011 Newbery Medal winner, this novel for readers 9 and up seamlessly blends history and fiction in a beautifully evocative story. "It's as if readers jump off the train in Manifest, Kansas, in 1936 with Abilene Tucker, 12, the feisty, likable, and perceptive narrator," noted School Library Journal, joining starred reviews from Booklist, Publishers Weekly, and Kirkus Reviews in praising Clare Vanderpool's lively debut.

"Abilene's first-person narrative is intertwined with newspaper columns from 1917 to 1918 and stories told by a diviner, Miss Sadie, while letters home from a soldier fighting in WWI add yet another narrative layer. Vanderpool weaves humor and sorrow into a complex tale involving murders, orphans, bootlegging, and a mother in hiding. With believable dialogue, vocabulary and imagery appropriate to time and place, and well-developed characters, this rich and rewarding first novel is 'like sucking on a butterscotch. Smooth and sweet'."Booklist (starred review)
