Winner Description: 
by Jennifer L. Holm, and published by HarperCollins
Winner Blurb: 

Growing up as the only girl in a large Finnish-American farming family along Washington's Nasel River in 1899, 12-year-old May Amelia prefers tricks and adventures to being a "Proper Young Lady." Unjustly blamed for tragedy, May must leave home before returning to claim her rightful place.

"The heroine's exuberant narration, with its unconventional punctuation, combines humor and heartbreak. May honestly lays bare her ambivalence about her brothers who are both competitive and supportive, in this spirited novel based on the author's family history."
