Turtle in Paradise by Jennifer Holm, the author of the award winning series Baby Mouse, is the story of a 9 year old girl being raised in New Jersey by a single mom during the 1930's, in the depths of the depression. Economic hardship forces her to return to her extended family in Key West, and she discovers her roots, and the riches that surround her, despite her poverty. She hates Shirley Temple and loves adventure. This is a great book for kids who like strong characters, adventure, humor and good dialogue.
