   I'm trying to remember the name of a book I had when I was a girl that I would like to find again. It was about a girl who had to stay with family members while her mom went to a treatment center. The girl had to leave her aunt's house and stay with a different relative. This aunt was rumored to be a witch because she was slightly eccentric, so the girl didn't really want to go. In the end, she found out what a great person her aunt was and realized that you can't always belive what people say. I'm sorry that I don't have better details to go by, but if anyone can help me out, I'd really appreciate it. Thanks!!!!   Steph

Around what year was it published, or when do you remember reading it? What kind of treatment center was it? Can you remember what part of the country it was set in? Or what time frame? ie 1930's etc.

I'm no help, but I've become a great fan of Loganberry Books' Stump the Bookseller.  They specialize in kids' books and might be able to help you.  Costs 2 bucks, but if you get desperate... http://www.loganberrybooks.com/stump.html
