Tweens Read One Came Home for April 9th


Page Turners' April selection is One Came Home by Amy Timberlake. The 6th-8th grade book discussion group meets up on Thursday, April 9th at 2:30PM.  For extra convenience, participants may ride bus # 3 from LMS to the library.

Copies of the book are available in both the Teen Area and Young Readers' Room.

About the Book
In the town of Placid, Wisconsin, in 1871, Georgie Burkhardt is known for two things: her uncanny aim with a rifle and her habit of speaking her mind plainly.

But when Georgie blurts out something she shouldn't, her older sister Agatha flees, running off with a pack of "pigeoners" trailing the passenger pigeon migration. And when the sheriff returns to town with an unidentifiable body—wearing Agatha's blue-green ball gown—everyone assumes the worst. Except Georgie. Refusing to believe the facts that are laid down (and coffined) before her, Georgie sets out on a journey to find her sister. She will track every last clue and shred of evidence to bring Agatha home. Yet even with resolute determination and her trusty Springfield single-shot, Georgie is not prepared for what she faces on the western frontier.

A 2014 Newbery Honor Book
Winner of the 2014 Edgar Award for Best Juvenile Novel
