Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Left as a tiny baby outside 63-year-old Hannah’s farmhouse door for her to name, love, and raise as her own, Blue has never known the identity of her parents, but it never seemed to matter until her tenth summer. Her best friend, having family troubles, seems like a stranger. Her familiar, loosely knit community is suddenly full of surprises. And her new project with the local newspaper leads her in unexpected directions. Meanwhile, Blue learns that every family has secrets, and hers is no exception. Set in 1952, this well-constructed novel features a number of distinctive, believable characters moving in their own circles, which occasionally and sometimes unexpectedly intersect those of others. Meanwhile, the words and deeds of even minor players resonate through the story, as Blue sets out to solve the mystery of her parentage and, in the end, discovers where her heart lies. Grades 4-6. --Carolyn Phelan

The story was most intriguing, from being found in a flower pot to all of the work Blue was expected to do on the farm to help her new found Mom. Her search for her "real" Mom was most interesting. A heartfelt story!

I really enjoyed this book. But I must admit, I did not like the way it ended. However, I give it five stars just the same, because I loved everything else about it, especially the main character's wit.
