Transcript of One Came Home by Amy Timberlake

The book takes place in the small town of Placid, Wisconsin in 1871.
The Setting
During the course of the book, Georgie Burkhardt and Billy McCabe set out to Dog Hollow to try to find Georgie's sister, Agatha Burkhardt.
Central Conflict
The climax is when Georgie and Billy are chased out of a counterfeiters' cave by Mr. Garrow and another man (who was nicknamed Bowler Hat by Georgie - we don't figure out his real name).
The Climax
Since this is an easy read, and the vocabulary is pretty simple, I would recommend this for 6th grade and up. Girls would probably like this book better than boys would because the main character is a girl.
