Moon over Manifest by Clare Vanderpool
I am not sure why it has taken me so long to read this. I suspect it was the cover that just didn't seem to appeal to me. This is truly the best book I have read in a long time. Please don't judge this book by its cover. This 2011 Newberry Award Winner has every aspect of a great read. Abigail Turner will steal your heart, Shady and Sadie are lovable characters and the adventure that Vanderpool takes you on is memorable.
