Enjoy this clever, well-written mystery, told from the POV of an imaginative and vulnerable girl. Strongly evocative of a specific place and time, this book transcends genre.

Yes it took me a page or two to get into this book. But once there, I could not put it down. I enjoyed the writing style, the atmosphere, and the story. When I finished reading it I missed my friend Gwinny

This book is completely captivating. While a little slow to start, the main character will draw you in and draws you along with her simple, straight-forward thinking that is intuitive yet fresh. While fairly predictable, the delight is in the journey and how the main character arrives at the same conclusions a more mature mind readily accepts. I'd definitely recommend it to friends!

Although I was intrigued by the idea, this book did not hold up to my expectations. The idea of a young girl figuring out who she is through finding out more about her family and town is a great plot, but the writing style is tough to get past. It is dry and does not catch the reader's attention. Although we had a nice conversation in my book club about this book, only 3 of 10 people finished the book which says a lot when you have a month to read it. The best thing about this book is that it led me to look up what Toby Jugs are, which led me to the fact that Peyton Manning is the biggest collector of Toby Jugs, huh, who knew?
