I read the book One Came Home by Amy Timberlake. The main character is a girl named Georgina. One day after her older sister runs away with the pigeoners, the Sherriff thinks he found her body along the side of the road. She had been there for awhile so the body was not recognizable but the dead girl was wearing a dress their mom had made. Georgina does not think it is her sister and runs away to find her sister and prove she is not dead. Most of the book is about her travels to find her sister. When Georgina's grandfather hears of her plan he secretly pays a young man to travel with her and keep her safe. Sometimes, she is the one who keeps him safe. Georgina eventually learns the truth about her sister after many daring adventures.
My favorite part of the book is when Georgina had to fight the cougar by throwing all her belongings at it. It was a very scary part. The book did have some sad parts but most of the time it is entertaining and fun and just a bit scary. I think this is the best book I have read since I became a Litpick reviewer. I think I will want to reread it later!
