Ruby Holler

Ruby Holler... a book to love
Ruby HollerThe first (of many) times that I read Ruby Holler by Sharon Creech I couldn't put it down. It is a story of twin orphans that become connected to an elderly couple whose children have grown and moved away. The four of them go through some challenges as they decide whether or not they will make a "family" of it. As I read, it was hard not to want to be ten years old again so that I could be friends with Florida and Dallas. At the same time, I wished I was sixty so that I could sit on the porch and chat with Sairey and Tiller.
