Description

Acclaimed author Cynthia Lord received the Newbery Honor for her debut novel Rules, which School Library Journal called "a lovely, warm read." In Touch Blue, Lord pens a moving tale about the meaning of home. Tess is heartbroken when she learns the state of Maine is about to shut down her small island's schoolhouse, forcing her family to move to the mainland. But Tess' parents have a plan. Increasing the school's attendance by having families take in foster children just might change the state's mind. Tess is sure the plan will work, but she makes a wish on some blue seaglass just in case.

Professional reviews

"Erin Moon gives a lovely reading of this island tale about the emotional bonds of family and place. If the State of Maine closes the school on Bethsaida Island due to the decrease in students, 11-year-old Tess Brooks's family will have to leave the only home she's ever known. To save the school, Reverend Beal hatches a plan to offer homes to foster children, and the islanders await their June arrival with excitement. Moon's portrayal of Tess is so genuine that it's almost startling the first time she introduces another voice in the story. She also produces authentic Maine voices as she recounts what that summer brings to light. K.O. (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine"
