Turtle in Paradise by Jennifer L. Holm

Jennifer Holm must have some friends on the Newbery committee as this is her 3rd book to be given a Newbery Honor, all three based on family stories. But seriously, Holm writes historical fiction well, maybe partly because she is drawing from her family. I have not read the middle one yet, though maybe it’s time I should. I like the title of this selection, but I think both the title and cover art lead the reader in a different direction than the story goes.

    The author says cornstarch helps for mosquito bites. I wonder if it would help black fly bites as well.
