    A story about finding a whole new beautiful life

    Charlemagne Reese a.k.a. Charlie gets a new home and a new loyal friend with an "up-down" walk in this wonderful story. Howard reminds me of the sturdy and peaceable Albert in FISH IN A TREE, a reliable friend, a person you can trust. "Pineapple." Howard says this secret code word to remind Charlie to keep her temper. Charlie knows more ways to make a wish than you can imagine! Wishbone is the stray dog that Charlie wants to belong to her so it can stop being a stray. Just like Heidi who had to choose between the life in the mountains and in the big city of Frankfurt, Charlie has to choose between the Blue Ridge Mountains and Raleigh. Barbara O'Connor brilliantly shows how a place changes after you live there for a while and the shabby, rundown houses look like homes with a beautiful view. I love the relationships between and in the families in this story. Howard's messy, active, loveable family and Charlie's Uncle Gus and Aunt Bertha who owns seven cats and about seven million stories. "Gus is a man you can trust," Bertha tells Charlie. It's a beautiful thing to have friends you can trust when you're in a tight spot. Beautifully written, spot on motivations, gripping and clear action. Some things are never explained, just like real life. It's nuanced: mistakes are made by everyone, but some characters make attempts to fix them. I do love the Bible Bucks. This book feels a little like Kate Di Camillo's BECAUSE OF WINN-DIXIE and a little bit like ONE FOR THE MURPHYS. If you liked either of those, you'll like this one too! A book worth reading more than once.

    Favourite book

    This book has an amzing story line, which was very clever as well. The characters were great and it was such a good book! I strongly suggest reading this book.
