Funny, smart, and hard working Deza Malone, from Bud, Not Buddy, has to rely on her talents when her Dad goes missing and her Mom loses her job during the Great Depression. Turpin’s narration covers the gamut of emotions, distinguishing each character and bringing Deza’s intelligence and humor to life. The novel fulfills qualities of a superb story punctuated with both laughter and tears. (10-14)
