really liked it
bookshelves: historical-fiction, mg, newbery-newbery-honor
Read from January 22 to 23, 2011

The 1930's must be in vogue this year. I think there are at least a half-dozen MG books set in this time period. Holm does a nice job of creating a sense of voice and place with Turtle and the Key West. However the book almost seemed a little too short?! I got to the end and I was a little disappointed. It didn't feel as "wrapped up" as I would have liked it to be.
