Summary
  • Separated from her best friends, Raymie and Beverly, twelve-year-old Louisiana struggles to oppose the winds of fate (and her eccentric grandmother) and find a way home
  • When Louisiana Elefante's granny wakes her up in the middle of the night to tell her that the day of reckoning has arrived and they have to leave home immediately, Louisiana figures that it is only a matter of time before Granny changes her mind and they come back home. After all, Granny has many middle-of-the-night ideas. But this time, things are different. This time, Granny intends for them never to return. Separated from her best friends, Raymie and Beverly, Louisiana struggles to oppose the winds of fate (and Granny) and to find a way to return home. But as Louisiana's life becomes entwined with the lives of the people of Richford, Georgia - including a surly motel owner, a walrus-like minister, and a mysterious boy with a crow on his shoulder - she starts to worry that she is destined only for good-byes. (Which could be due to the curse on Louisiana's and Granny's heads. But that is a story for another time.) Called "one of DiCamillo's most singular and arresting creations" by the New York Times Book Review, the heartbreakingly irresistible Louisiana Elefante was introduced to readers in Raymie Nightingale, and now, with humor and tenderness, Kate DiCamillo returns to tell her story. -- From dust jacket
