Twenty Gold Falcons by Amy Gordon
From the author of Gorillas of Gill Park, here's another sort of mystery with many of the same characters from that first book. Aiden and her mom have moved to Gloria, leaving behind their family farm after the death of Aiden's father. Aiden has trouble settling in but through a crazy cast of characters, some of which turn out to be relatives, and a story about falcons and gold coins, she gradually finds a way to be comfortable in her new environment. This is a Mark Twain Nominee for 2012-2013.
