Comfort Creek by Joyce McDonald

Quinn and her family have seen better days. Mom has gone off to sing in a band, and Pa-Daddy is moving them out of their hometown and into the swampy backcountry. Worst of all, Quinn has lost her chance to edit the sixth-grade newspaper at her old school. Pa-Daddy is having serious money troubles, but is that any excuse for turning Quinn's world upside down? Warmth and wit bring spice to this memorable novel about a family's discovery that sticking together is the only way to beat the rough times.
