Family secrets – that's what twelve-year–old Ellie discovers when she inherits a Vermont farm from her cruel and hard-hearted grandmother who nearly ruined her mother's life.  Her father wants nothing to do with the farm, but Ellie is drawn to old diaries.  Perhaps in them she can find more about her mother who died when she was only five.  Ellie is both fascinated and frightened by what the diaries reveal.  So will you, when you read Mountain Pose, by Nancy Hope Wilson.  (Jean Bellavance for Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Awards 2003)
