The Signature of All Things by Elizabeth Gilbert. Torn about this book (I liked Eat Pray Love but thought it dragged on a bit) but the review is good. --Alma Whittaker is that bearable kind of know-it-all — a child who truly does. The daughter of Henry Whittaker, a rough and lowly English orchardist's son turned American rare-botanicals giant, Alma is raised by her sage Dutch mother and old-school drug baron father in the rarefied air of 1800s Philadelphia.
Ophelia and the Marvelous Boy is an interesting adaptation of Hans Christian Anderson's fairy tale, The Snow Queen. Ophelia is an eleven-year-old girl who finds the Marvelous Boy who has been trapped for many years. She hopes to help him escape and in so doing save the world from the Snow Queen. There is just enough fantasy, mystery and suspense in this book to grab the middle grade reader.
