Dallas leaned far out of the window, his eyes fixed on a bird flying lazily in the distance. Sun slanted through the clouds above, as if a spotlight were aimed on the bird. (from the first line)
Thirteen-year-old fraternal twins Dallas and Florida have grown up in a terrible orphanage but their lives change forever when an eccentric but sweet older couple invites them each on an adventure, beginning in an almost magical place called Ruby Holler. An ALA Notable Childrens Book. Reprint. *Author: Creech, Sharon *Publication Date: 2004/01/01 *Number of Pages: 320 *Binding Type: Paperbound *Grade Level: 4-6 *Language: English *Depth: 0.50 *Width: 5.00 *Height: 7.75
From the Publisher:

"Trouble twins" Dallas and Florida are orphans who have given up believing there is such a thing as a loving home. Tiller and Sairy are an eccentric older couple who live in the beautiful, mysterious Ruby Holler, but they're restless for one more big adventure. When they invite the twins to join them on their journeys, they first must all stay together in the Holler, and the magic of the place takes over. Two pairs of lives grow closer, and are changed forever.

Annotation:
Two orphans, Ruby and her brother, Dallas, are instructed by the evil Mr. Trepid--he runs the orphanage with his wife--that they must accompany the elderly Moreys on separate vacations. The two suspect something is amiss, but the Moreys just might prove to be looking out for the children's best interests.

Praise

Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"There's an appealing folkloric tinge to this novel....Reluctant readers may also appreciate the very short chapters (some are no more than two pages in length) and the easygoing dialogue." July/August 2002

Riverbank Review
"Creech's bright humor, vivid characterization, and deft language, combined with the twists and turns of the plot, make reading this novel aloud a rare treat." - Lee Galda Winter 2002-2003
