Ella, St Gregory's Bath
We shouldn't blame those who look suspicious until we have proven them guilty. Annabelle, a tomboyish girl growing up on a Pennsylvanian farm in the 1930s, is one of those people. She is friends with a 'wild' man who looks brutish and violent, but really, Toby is a sweet, empathetic, quiet person, who loves photography and hickory nut pies with cream. When an incident happens and the finger is pointed at Toby, Annabelle must figure out how to make the authorities listen to her- and prove that people are more than what they look like.
This was a beautiful, empathetic book, which taught me to look closer than the first glance.
