    "You are now entering Ruby Holler, the one and only Ruby Holler! Your lives are never going to be the same—"

    "Trouble twins" Dallas and Florida are orphans who have given up believing there is such a thing as a loving home. Tiller and Sairy are an eccentric older couple who live in the beautiful, mysterious Ruby Holler, but they’re restless for one more big adventure. When they invite the twins to join them on their journeys, they first must all stay together in the Holler, and the magic of the place takes over. Two pairs of lives grow closer and are changed forever.

    • Excellent Sharon Creech Title
      Verified Purchase

      Sharon Creech has a good way with words. This book proved to be especially poignant to the boys I work with, most of whom have been adopted or are awaiting adoption. The story begins with brother and sister who are residents of yet another foster home, and in fact not a very nice one. They have dreams of somehow earning enough money to steal away some night and hop the train to anywhere. Instead they are paired on a temporary basis with a couple who is growing older and husband and wife each has an idea of the perfect big trip. But their ideas are different so they need travelling companions to travel separartely with them. The story has concepts of trust, mystery, adventure, and takes the reader on a journey that ends with more questions than answers but still an overall sense of caring and accomplishment. And it does have a sense of satisfying and caring completion. The chapters are very short so it will keep those who are not excited about reading moving ahead at a quicker pace than many other books. The boys I work with (ages 9-12) all loved the book as well as others by Ms. Creech. It works well as either a read aloud or read alone book and would make a nice gift for any preteen, especially if they are in a foster or adoptive home.
