Booklist Review of the Day

Finch House
by Ciera Burch

Micah isn’t ready for change. Her mom is moving them an hour away from Poppop’s house and the familiarity of their town—including the elusive Finch House, an old, run-down mansion Poppop makes her promise to stay away from. Micah finds herself biking near Finch House one day close to the move, but it’s no longer run-down; a new family has moved in, and a boy her age, Theo, is hanging out in the yard.
