    This book is one of the Mark Twain nominees this year, and its really good.  The Mighty Miss Malone takes place during the great depression.  It's about the main character, the Mighty Miss Malone, aka Deza, and her family.  They live in Gary, Indiana.  Deza always gets A’s or B's on everything.  Her dad uses lots of alliteration.  The mom, is, well, the mom.  The brother, Jimmie, is really good at singing.  
    Well, the great depression strikes Gary hard, and Deza's dad no longer has a job.  They will have to move out.  But before they do, Deza's dad disappears.  While escaping Gary, they will also have to find their father, and get to Flint, Michigan.  Will they make it?  

Have you read The Mighty Miss Malone?  If so, did you like it?  If you haven’t, would you read it?
