Full of Beans  by Jennifer L. Holm

Beans Curry has plans. Big plans.

He owns this town. He and his gang of barefoot buddies know everyone in Key West, and they know how to get things done--and get paid.

Most of the time, anyway.

Now it's the middle of the Great Depression, and times are tough. There are no jobs and everyone is out for themselves, which means it's hard for a kid to make a cent. Luckily, Beans isn't any kid.

But not every plot goes according to plan...

Three-time Newberry Honor winner Jennifer L. Holm delivers a funny and heartwarming novel that reminds us how, even in the toughest times, one kid's resourceful spirit can change everything.

***Update: This week's book will join Patricia M.'s bookshelf. Enjoy, Patricia!***
