    Not only is this a recent Newbery Medal winner, but it's also a great multi-layered story that kept me reading until the end! Set in the dry, dusty 1930s, the main story revolves around Abilene Tucker, who's used to moving from place to place with her drifter father. When her dad takes a job with the railroad, he sends her to the little town of Manifest, Kansas, where he spent some time growing up. Knowing little about her father's past, but familiar with his stories of the place, she is eager to see the town with her own eyes. On her first night there, Abilene finds a box of letters and trinkets hidden up in the floorboards. The letters are written from Jinx and Ned, and they mention a spy called "The Rattler." Now she has another mystery to unravel – one that comes in reluctant bits and pieces through Miss Sadie, the elderly "diviner," Pastor Shady Howard, newspaper columnist Hattie May, and other townspeople.

      Jacob Tibbs is a cat, and the runt of the litter, to boot. He lives on a ship with his mother (Mrs. Tibbs) who has a stellar reputation as a ratter. Their adventure across the Atlantic in the 1840s is exciting! The story is about Jacob’s world, including the sailors on board the Melissa Rae. While this makes for a great family or classroom read-aloud, there are some topics to note: death of people and animals, talk of slave ships, someone with scars on their back, scary storms and rats. It’s a must-read for animal lovers, especially those of us who love our cats. Did you know ship cats could predict the weather? By author Cylin Busby. 266 pgs, pb. ~ Sara
