Cover: If You Find Me by Emily Murdoch
I think this is a good cover, and the book sounds good as well. The original title was The Patron Saint of Beans, and it has been changed to If You Find Me.
The description is:
A broken-down camper at the Obed Scenic and Wild River National Park - dubbed the Hundred Acre Wood - is the only home fifteen-year-old Carey has ever known.
Sure, coping with a bipolar mother on meth is no picnic, but beneath the sun-dazzled canopies of Hickory and Walnut, Carey's violin transports her from their bare-bones existence in the same way her little sister, Jenessa, finds comfort in her stash of second-hand Pooh books.
Life is dependable that way, until Mama goes into town for supplies and vanishes off the face of Tennessee, sending social services in her wake with a one-way ticket back to their father - a stranger in an even stranger world.
This book is being published on April 2, 2013. Add it to your TBR list if you like the synopsis.
