Turtle in Paradise by Jennifer L. Holm

Inspired by family stories, two-time Newbery Honor winner andNew York Timesbestselling author Jennifer L. Holm beautifully blends family lore with Americas past in this charming gem of a novel, rich in historical detail, humor, and the unique flavors of Key West. Life isnt like the movies, and eleven-year-old Turtle is no Shirley Temple. Shes smart and tough and has seen enough of the world not to expect a Hollywood ending. After all, its 1935, and jobs and money and sometimes even dreams are scarce. So when Turtles mama gets a job housekeeping for a lady who doesnt like kids, Turtle says goodbye without a tear and heads off to Key West, Florida, to stay with relatives shes never met. Floridas like nothing Turtle has ever seen. Its hot and strange, full of wild green peeping out between houses, ragtag boy cousins, and secret treasure. Before she knows whats happened, Turtle finds herself coming out of the shell she has spent her life building, and as she does, her world opens up in the most unexpected ways.
