The papers call Maude notorious. But 12-year-old Sallie knows her big sister didn't do the things the stories say . . . not on purpose anyway. In fact, she and Maude have made a fresh start and are trying to live on the up-and-up. But just when the girls are settling into their new life, Maude is arrested—and before you can say "jailbreak," the orphaned sisters are back on the run!
In the sequel to the critically acclaimed The Misadventures of Maude March, Newbery Honor winner Audrey Couloumbis once again takes on a dizzingly fast, delightfully rowdy, and altogether heartwarming ride through the old west—proving that half the fun of any journey is the getting there.
Audrey Couloumbis's first book for children, Getting Near to Baby, won the Newbery Honor in 2000. She is also the author of Say Yes and The
Misadventures of Maude March, which was named a Junior Library Guild Selection, a Book Sense 76 pick, and a New York Public Library 100 Titles for Reading and Sharing.
“Old-fashioned storytelling, humor, rollicking adventure, and heroines to root for. A natural for reading aloud.”—Kirkus Reviews
“Descriptive details . . . are woven seamlessly into the lively story and provide a real flavor for the Old West and life on the trail.” —School Library Journal
