Sylvie Bloom is moving up from 4th grade to 5th grade and is sad to be leaving her most perfect teacher behind, one who knows what she is thinking without her having to say a word.
Sylvie's teacher, Mrs. Ludolf, has a husband, the sheriff, who is almost illiterate and writes a "crime/news interest" column in the town newspaper. Mrs. Ludolf gives Sylvie her husband as her summer project - to write his column for him as she rides around town with the sheriff.
Sylvie also has a personal project this summer - to figure out why her mother, a famous opera singer, is content to stay in their small Wyoming town instead of returning to life on the stage.
This short book is a treasure.
I read this with tears in my eyes and a smile on my face.
