Puffin 12/31/2013. New paperback. 2013 SIBA Young Adult Book Award Winner. Store pick: Moses LoBeau washed ashore in a small NC town during a hurricane 11 years ago, and while she makes every attempt to find her 'Upstream Mother', she's mostly happy with her life with the Colonel and Miss Lana. When a detective shows up asking questions, and a neighbor winds up dead, Mo takes it upon herself to find out what's really going on in a town where everyone knows everything about everybody, and family is the most important thing you can have. Mo's optimism, wit, and spunk will inspire readers of all ages. -Melissa O., store employee Newbery Award Honor Book.
