Washed ashore as a baby in tiny Tupelo Landing, North Carolina, Mo LoBeau, now 11, and her best friend Dale turn detective when the amnesiac Colonel, owner of a cafe and co-parent of Mo with his cook, Miss Lana, seems implicated in a murder.
From the Publisher:
A hilarious Southern debut with the kind of characters you meet once in a lifetime

Rising sixth grader Miss Moses LoBeau lives in the small town of Tupelo Landing, NC, where everyone's business is fair game and no secret is sacred. She washed ashore in a hurricane eleven years ago, and she's been making waves ever since. Although Mo hopes someday to find her "upstream mother," she's found a home with the Colonel--a café owner with a forgotten past of his own--and Miss Lana, the fabulous café hostess. She will protect those she loves with every bit of her strong will and tough attitude. So when a lawman comes to town asking about a murder, Mo and her best friend, Dale Earnhardt Johnson III, set out to uncover the truth in hopes of saving the only family Mo has ever known.

Full of wisdom, humor, and grit, this timeless yarn will melt the heart of even the sternest Yankee.
Making a home in a small North Carolina town where she washed up as a baby during a hurricane 11 years earlier, sixth-grader Mo taps the power of her strong will and tough attitude when a lawman arrives in town to investigate a murder case that threatens to destabilize Mo's adopted family. A first novel.
Annotation:
Murder, kidnapping, and a bank robbery are just the tip of the iceberg in this quirky middle grade novel. As a baby, Mo(ses) LoBeau floated into town in a basket during a hurricane, finding a home with the Colonel in tiny Tupelo Landing, North Carolina. Now 11-years-old, Mo spends time slinging peanut butter and Mountain Dew at the Tupelo Café, run by Miss Lana, her adopted mother. Constantly curious about her "Upstream Mother," Mo plans on continuing her research over the summer, and seeing her best friend, Dale Earnhardt Johnson III. All that goes south when a dead body brings a nosy detective to town, stirring up a slew of accusations and intrigues. A 2013 Newbery Honor Book.

Praise

"Here is a writer who has never met a metaphor or simile she couldn't put to good use....But it's Mo's wry humor that makes this first novel completely memorable." (starred review) 04/09/2012

"What do you get when you combine BECAUSE OF WINN-DIXIE's heart with the mystery and action of HOLES? You get an engaging, spirit-lifting and unforgettable debut for young readers." 04/15/2012
