Return to the wonderful world of Newbery Honor Book Turtle in Paradisethrough the eyes of Turtle s cousin Beans Five Starred Reviews A New York Public Library Best Book for Kids, 2016 Grown-ups lie. That s one truth Beans knows for sure. He and his gang know how to spot a whopper a mile away, because they are the savviest bunch of barefoot conchs (that means locals ) in all of Key West. Not that Beans really minds; it s 1934, the middle of the Great Depression. With no jobs on the island, and no money anywhere, who can really blame the grown-ups for telling a few tales? Besides, Beans isn t anyone s fool. In fact, he has plans. Big plans. And the consequences might surprise even Beans himself. "A surprising coming-of-age story with a remarkably honest message." The New York Times " Holm] captures this colorful slice of Depression history with her usual vivacious wit. . . . Children will love Beans." Shelf Awareness, Starred "Multifaceted supporting characters . . . are all seen through Bean s refreshingly honest eyes and create a novel as entertaining as the motion pictures he loves to see." The Horn Book Magazine, Starred Inspired by actual events, Holm s talent for writing historical fiction is on full display. . . . Interesting family and small-town dynamics further enrich this fascinating account of a young boy s life in Florida s Recovery Key. Booklist, Starred "Filled with humor, heart, and warmth; readers can only hope to hear more about the Curry clan." Kirkus Review, Starred "Entertaining and illuminating historical fiction."
