Review:

There's a mystery at the heart of this lyrical novel for young adults: what really happened to Belle Prater, the aunt of 12-year-old Gypsy Arbutus Leemaster? When Gypsy's cousin, Belle's son Woodrow, comes to live in tiny Coal Station, Virginia, he sets off a chain of events that precipitates a solution to this enigma, as well as the mystery of Gypsy's own father's death seven years earlier. Ruth White's characters, particularly the cross-eyed, brilliant Woodrow, are sharply drawn, and the small-town life of rural Virginia is wonderfully described.

From the Inside Flap:

When Belle Prater disappears, her boy Woodrow comes to live with his grandparents in Coal Station, Virginia. Woodrow's cousin Gypsy lives next door and tries to find out about his mother's disappearance. As the cousins spend time together, they find they have much in common and become best friends during their sixth-grade year. But Gypsy, the town beauty, has hidden secrets of her own and wonders how Woodrow accepts his mother's disappearance when she can't get over her father's death. That's when Woodrow tells Gypsy the truth about his mother.
