Sue’s February Recommendation

Moon Over Manifest by Clare Vanderpool

“I was so excited mid-January when this book was named the 2011 Newbery Medal Award winner.  Moon Over Manifest, by a first-time author, has all the elements of an enduring classic.  It is set in the Depression, with a spunky and endearing heroine, tomboy Abilene Tucker, who has been riding the rails since birth with her drifter dad.  When her dad
sends her to stay (unwillingly) with an old friend of his in Manifest, Kansas,  Abilene tries to uncover details of his past in Manifest. She stumbles into a mystery, makes some new and interesting friends (including a bootlegger, a gutsy girl reporter, a no-nonsense nun and a foreign fortune-teller), and learns a lesson about what makes a community come together.   This book has it all:  history, mystery, humor, heart and heroes.”

Read about it or request it from the library catalog.
