Great read. Don't miss it. Just wanted it to keep going until the world it created broke then I wanted it over quick. I loved 'living' in that world. It could have gone on forever. But alas, as in life, all good things come to an end. And this was a very O'Henry ending. You will love it.

This is my kind of story. During a busy time of my life, I spent moments I didn't really have with my nose in this book, staying up late and wondering what would happen next. It is filled with realistic characters who seem as if they could be your aunt, grandmother, sister, or friend, and there is such an honesty to each one throughout this spellbinding story. Read more...

Nine-year-old Evelyn, better known as Button, is a follow-the-rules kind of girl living in a small Wisconsin town in 1961, so it's no surprise that when she meets free-spirited Winnalee she's fascinated.

Winnalee's even feistier, much older sister, the sassy and sometime foul-mouthed Freeda, lives on her own terms, not caring what anyone thinks. Loving Aunt Verdella and Button's strict mother, Jewel, are not sure what to think of these sisters, but Freeda might change their lives in unlikely ways. When a shocking secret is inadvertently uncovered, what will happen to the relationship between these women?

Do we take people on face value or dig deeper to discover who they really are and why? And can Winnalee's ''Book of Bright Ideas,'' in which she records what she learns about the world, help or not? If you're game for a story that really makes you think about what it means to be a friend, then this is the perfect book for you.
