Way Down Deep by Ruth White

Posted by Laura Losch on January 13, 2010

Welcome back to school from our “snow” break! I saw a lot of groggy faces yesterday, but hopefully today is a better day (with more sleep).

It’s book review time again and I’ve got a great one for all the ladies out there!

Way Down Deep by Ruth White

This book is about Ruby, a 12-year-old girl living in Way Down Deep, West Virginia. She lives in the town’s boarding house with Miss Arbutus, but how she got there no one knows! When Ruby was two or three (no one was sure of her exact age) she appeared on the steps of the town’s courthouse out of nowhere. Ruby’s life was good and she was happy, but she always wanted to know who her real parents were and where she came from. Well, one day out of the blue, a man comes to town and tries to rob the local bank (make a note a I said “tried”, he wasn’t that good). Robber Bob, as the town people call him, opens up doors to Ruby’s past. Does Robber Bob really know who she is? Does Robber Bob know where she was born and where she came from? Check out this great book to find out. . . .

See you in the library! 🙂
