The Great Unexpected :
Celebrate the Unexpected
In Blackbird Tree live two orphan girls: Naomi Deane, brimming with curiosity, and Lizzie Scatterding, who could talk the ears off a cornfield. Naomi has a knack for being around when trouble happens, for she knows all the peculiar people in town. But then the strangely charming Finn boy drops out of a tree. And the Dingle Dangle man appears, asking questions. Curious surprises are revealed--three locked trunks, a crooked bridge, and that boy. Soon Naomi and Lizzie find themselves zooming toward a future neither could ever have imagined. Meanwhile, across the ocean, an old lady whose heart has been deceived concocts a plan. . . .
As two worlds are woven together, Newbery Medal winner Sharon Creech celebrates the gossamer thread that connects us all.NOTE: This is a Scratch and Dent book and may have noticeable dents, scratches and various other cosmetic issues as well as torn or missing dust jacket.
