Review: Butterfly Hollow by Maria Cisneros Toth #MG #Depression

Charlene is heart broken. They've taken her Daddy away for murdering Otis Beecher. He didn't do it the Gator-Man did. Momma is so sad she just sleeps and seems like she's bent on swilling all of Daddy's moonshine since she can't buy anymore headache medicine. If anyone is going to do something it's up to Charlene.

Charlene's first adventure: Find her Daddy's remaining moonshine jugs and sell it to his regular customers - she's hungry.

You'll love Charlene's courage and persistence and Mrs. Toth guides us through her adventures with her friends in tow. There's never an idea, thought or detail missed but you never have to worry about the action stopping or slowing down so they won't be missed.
