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
