"Trouble Twins" Dallas and Florida have been shuffled between foster families and the orphanage all their lives. All they want is a loving place to call home, but they are mistrustful that one exists for the likes of them. Tiller an Sairy are a sweet couple who are each restless for one more big adventure while their bodies are still spry enough to paddle a canoe or climb a mountain. Their own children have grownup and moved away, so they're each looking for someone to help them and keep them company on their last exciting journey. And Ruby Holler is the beautiful, mysterious place that changes all of their lives forever. When Tiller and Sairy invite Dallas and Florida to stay with them and keep them company on their adventures, the magic of the Holler takes over, and the two kids begin to think that maybe, just maybe, the old folks aren't that bad . . . Filled with humor, poignancy, cookies and treasure maps, Newbery Medal winner Sharon Creech's Ruby Holler is a delightful book about a special place where it's never to late to love -- or be loved.

book is about kids in harsh foster home who finally meet up with decent foster parents who are kind, patient and teach the kids a number of lessons throughout the time they are together. The good family is this book is delightful; the mean one can be a little frightening.

Frightening or Intense Scenes: bad foster parents are unkind to kids and give consequences which are too harsh. Not largely populating the book so the good foster parents actions outweigh the bad by far.
