Amazon Editorial Review:
From the national bestselling author of Whistling in the Dark comes another funny, poignant, unforgettable story.

The summer Gibby McGraw catches her big break, the cicadas are humming, and it’s so warm even the frogs are sweating. Brain damaged after a tragic car accident that took both her parents, Gibby is now NQR (Not Quite Right), a real challenge for a fledgling newspaper reporter. Especially when she stumbles upon the dead body of the next governor of Kentucky, Buster Malloy.

Armed with her trusty blue spiral note-book, Gibby figures that solving the murder might be her best chance to prove to everyone that she can become Quite Right again. But she gets more than she bargained for when she uncovers a world of corruption, racism, and family secrets in small town Cray Ridge. Lucky for her, she’s also about to discover that some things are far more important than all the brains in the world, and that miracles occur in the most unexpected moments.

Journal Entry 10 by tostle from Salt Lake City, Utah USA on Sunday, November 29, 2009
What a fascinating story! I appreciate reading this thoughtful and tender story. I loved Gibby--what a strong girl...and Billy-he's my hero!
I appreciated these two quotes from the book:
"There are only two ways to love your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle." ~Albert Einstein
I would like to live my life "as though everything is a miracle!!"
This quote is from page 254: "...I learned something wondrows...it's only natural to stuff sad stuff away...,but listen here--if you expose those sorrows to the light of day, you might be pleasantly surprised by the outcome...."
Lovely story, thanks for sharing this book with me! I will be sending this book back home!

I wasn't really too impressed with this book and I was a little annoyed at Gibby's NQRness, always forgetting everything....
