Hoping BIGTIME that Elissa Sussman writes another in the "Stray" & "Burn" storyline! I just have to know what happens next! :) LOVE THOSE STORIES!
Interest Level: 5-8; Reading Level: 6.4 What would you do to help save your family home? Esme wants to help her grandmother save their home from foreclosure but she is only twelve and she doesn't know what else she can do beside helping make the honey. That is, until she finds some bones up on the hill. Esme's granddaddy died up on that hill months before and Esme feels closest to him when she is up there. After a hard rain, Esme finds something that she never expected - dinosaur bones. As she begins uncovering the bones she feels a connection to those bones and does everything she can to keep it a secret. Esme also begins to realize that she has the "magical" powers that her grandmother has - the ability to find things. Esme doesn't know if this is a blessing or a curse, and she sure knows that it won't help her find her missing father. While Esme is going through all of these changes so much else is going on - they find an illegal moonshine still, a murder, and trying to decide who has her best interest at hand. While Esme's family life is a hot mess, at least she has her best friend, Finch, or at least she though he was her best friend. When Finch informs a professor at a nearby college of the dinosaur bones, Esme feels betrayed that her secret is now exposed. Will Esme be able to forgive Finch for his apparent betrayal? Will Esme's runaway father ever come back home? And most importantly, will Esme's family home be taken away by the bank? Read this incredible story of family, friendship, love and loss.
