This is a quiet coming-of-age novel set in the 1950s. I just loved this book...best story I've read in ages. The characters are so well done that they stayed with me long after I'd finished reading the book.

A story that takes place in rural America in the 1950. A story about a young girls dreams. Living in an tar-paper house with atheist parents and constantly on the move. Young Tamara longs to stay in one place and is invited to church with the Baptist family across the road. Good Book!

I absolutely loved this book. From the back cover: Tamara Anderson was in third grade when she found out most people stay in the same house for more than a year. Until then she thought everyone picked up and moved on a regular basis, crossing the country. Now she is turning 15, and she wants to stay in Mayville, NY. At first glance, there isn't much to stick around for. In the tar-paper house across the road there are the Murphys, the Baptist family who upset Tamara's atheist parents by inviting her to church. In the pasture there's Edith the cow. And up in the attic there's the ghost of the boy who used to live there, or at least that's what Tamara suspects. But this time Tamara is putting her foot down, and planting it.....

This was a very good book and I will add this author to my favorite authors list. This author delves into her charachters and develops them as though they're someone you know. Worth reading.

An engaging story (true) about a young adult girl who's family moves constantly and the strain that entails (11 schools in one year!). It's poignant, funny, and I enjoyed it.
