Availability: Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
Published: Dial Books - May 10th, 2012

I loved the young heroine of this book, Mo, whose first lucky day in her life was when she washed ashore as a baby during a hurricane and was adopted by a couple of strangers in a small southern town. I love a kid with resilience, loyalty and a sense of humor, who is not afraid of a little adventure and mystery-solving to protect her family.
