Turn Left At the Cow by Lisa Bullard - OPTIONAL

Bullard, Lisa Turn Left At the Cow, 297pgs. Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2013, $16.99.  Language: G; Mature Content: G; Violence: G:

In this fast paced story, a boy tries to solve the mystery of his father’s disappearance 14yrs. ago. Travis finds he is the subject of much gossip and animosity by the townspeople because of his resemblance to his father who is suspected to have robbed a bank before he vanished. He has some close calls before the surprise ending solves the mystery.
Upper elementary and middle school students will enjoy the characters and the mystery of the stolen money. There is some mildly crude language.
