The Search for Belle Prater
( by Ruth WHite, Farrar Straus $16 Score: ) When Woodrow’s birthday arrives on New Year’s Eve the phone rings, but the person on the other end hangs up. Woodrow is certain it is his mother, Belle Prater, who disappeared a year ago. A sequel to the award-winning Belle Prater’s Boy, this beautifully crafted novel is about young people who not only suffer losses, but have the grit to go on to do something about them. White has also drawn some strong adults that the young people in the story can rely upon. 9–12.
