Praise
"Holm's voice for Turtle is winning authentic--that of a practical, clear-eyed observer--and her nimble way with dialogue creates laugh-out-loud moments. Sweet, funny and superb."
"This richly detailed novel was inspired by Holm's great-grandmother's stories. Readers who enjoy melodic, humorous tales of the past won't want to miss it."
From the Publisher
Editors Note In 1935, when her mother gets a job housekeeping for a woman who does not like children, eleven-year-old Turtle is sent to stay with relatives she has never met in far away Key West, Florida.
Annotation Set in 1935, when times were tough, 11-year-old Turtle's mother is fortunate enough to get a job as a housekeeper. But the woman she's working for doesn't like children, so Turtle is sent down south, to Key West and relatives she doesn't know. A tough customer, Turtle quickly falls in with a fun loving group of kids that trade babysitting for candy. Soon, she's tearing around, discovering her family, and finding unexpected treasure.
