A Newbery Honor Book
An ALA-ALSC Notable Children's Book
Winner of the Edgar Allan Poe Award for Best Juvenile Novel
“An adventure, a mystery, and a love song to the natural world. . . . Run out and read it. Right now.”—Newbery Medalist Karen Cushman
In the town of Placid, Wisconsin, in 1871, Georgie Burkhardt is known for two things: her uncanny aim with a rifle and her habit of speaking her mind plainly.
But when Georgie blurts out something she shouldn't, her older sister Agatha flees, running off with a pack of "pigeoners" trailing the passenger pigeon migration. And when the sheriff returns to town with an unidentifiable body—wearing Agatha's blue-green ball gown—everyone assumes the worst. Except Georgie. Refusing to believe the facts that are laid down (and coffined) before her, Georgie sets out on a journey to find her sister. She will track every last clue and shred of evidence to bring Agatha home. Yet even with resolute determination and her trusty Springfield single-shot, Georgie is not prepared for what she faces on the western frontier.
From the Hardcover edition.

That was the bed book ever!!!!loved the book please make more like that!
Just like other books, it starts out pretty boring, but gets more exciting at you read on. Mostly, it started to get interesting (to me,at least. You probably have a whole different opinion) at the point when Georgie and billy leave for dog hollow. After the cougar attack, I would stay up for hours on end reading. It must've been challenging to try to take my attention from the book when Georgie got in a shootout, and when she got in the newspaper almost topped my experience with this book. The part that made me have some "Eh" or "I have mixed feelings..." Thoughts was the part when Agatha wrote and said she was alive, gave (wow, I already forgot her name!) some girl her dress, and caused confusion,making this book pretty good.
