Moon Over Manifest
Having finished Clare Vanderpool's 2011 Newbery Medal book, Moon Over Manifest, I want to recommend it to you. The story takes place in Manifest, Kansas over one summer in 1936 but spans a generation of from 1918 through 1936. The intricately woven story takes in all of the characters in 12-year old Abilene Tucker's world.
