A Missouri Mark Twain Readers Award preliminary nominee (grades 4-6).

After her grandfather passes away, Joplin is allowed to pick one item to take home, she chooses an old cookie tin that has a broken decorative platter inside it. After getting the platter repaired, Joplin wishes for a friend and the next day a girl resembling the girl from the platter is in the garden and she makes a new friend at school. Is it a coincidence? Meanwhile there is a strange man skulking around.

I didn't love it, but I thought the author kept it interesting. She definitely made some interesting choices within the narrative, and it is not quite the same as any other juvenile novel I have read recently.
