Hannah is disappointed when her best friend, Aggie, moves away and never writes.  She loves to write letters and is determined to find a new friend, a good pen pal, with whom she can share her thoughts.  The story takes place in upstate New York, in 1937, when Franklin Delano Roosevelt was President. This book is told through the lively letters Hannah writes and receives.  Some of her pen pals are family members, one is a boy in Kansas who is only writing back because it's a school assignment, and she even writes to some of the famous people of her time. Who will be her true friend?  What will she learn with through her correspondence?  (Jean Bellavance for Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Awards, 2003)
