2012 Caudill Award Nominee - Greetings from Nowhere by Barbara O'Connor
This story takes place at a roadside hotel which is being sold by an older woman, Aggie, who just lost her husband. When she puts the place up for sale, many new people suddenly come and stay at the hotel which hasn't seen a visitor in months. Included are three pre-teen children who have little to nothing in common. At least that's the way it appears in the beginning. But once their paths are crossed, they soon become entwined together in something that just might be the start of a really good friendship. And through each other, the find a way to heal their own personal wounds.
A good story about how life brings people together for a reason, we just may never know what that reason is.
