Louisiana’s Way Home by Kate DiCamillo

Immediately after we finished Raymie Nightingale we were able to get the audiobook of Louisiana’s Way Home and start that. Since I had not read this one it was an especially nice choice. The reader was different, but as Tabby immediately pointed out to me, “of course because this book is told from Louisian’s point of view. Also the other book was in 3rd person but this one is in 1st person.” Good point, Tab.
Anyway, we did like this reader and we really liked this story. It had us on an emotional roller coaster.

Louisiana has left Florida with her Granny quite abruptly and driven them to Georgia. A dramatic teeth removal situation has them unexpectedly staying in a motel and interacting with people. Family secrets are revealed and Louisiana has much to come to terms with, including the Flying Elephantes (having listened to it I don’t know if that’s how it’s spelled, but that’s how I saw it in my head) and the curse of “sundering.”

We especially enjoyed the references to Raymie and Beverly and felt the ending was satisfying. And now we can’t wait for the Beverly book this fall!
