Book Recommendation- Louisiana's Way Home

"Louisiana's Way Home", by Kate DiCamillo.
Linda and I are so excited about Louisiana. You are going to fall in love with her. You are going to want to bundle her up and bring her home. Just you wait. 
Called “one of DiCamillo’s most singular and arresting creations” by The New York Times Book Review, the heartbreakingly irresistible Louisiana Elefante was introduced to readers in Raymie Nightingale — and now, with humor and tenderness, Kate DiCamillo returns to tell her story.
"This is a marvelous book, full of heart but without a drop of cheap sentimentality. . . . What a pleasure it is to read a story in which the author’s faith in the goodness of ‘average’ people is set forth with such vigor and confidence. This celebration of kindness is itself a kindness to the reader and an encouragement to hope."
—Dean Koontz, bestselling author
