One of the good things about the advances in orthodontics is that now we can use orthopedics to address certain growth problems with the bones and jaws early on in a child's life.

When necessary, early treatment addresses bite and jaw issues before the adult teeth come in. In these cases, the first phase of orthopedic treatment usually ends before the adult teeth erupt. When that happens, it is usually necessary for the child to have a second phase of treatment. This second phase aligns the adult teeth after they erupt.

The second phase of treatment is not the norm but it can make tremendous positive changes for a child who has major issues and sees an orthodontist at an early age.

Many times, early treatment can help avoid the removal of permanent teeth later in life and we are all about avoiding that!

DEMENTIA AND THE EVERY DAY REALITY FOR CAREGIVERS http://www.thewaynedalenews.com/heath/11562-dementia-and-the-every-day-reality-for-caregivers.html Hello, again! I'd like to begin by telling you a little about myself. I'm a wife, mother to a beautiful 18-year-old daughter, step-mother, step-grandmother, and am very blessed to be "Mimi" to two beautiful little girls that I nanny two days each week. I would love to hear from you, my readers! Please feel free to email me at Simmonseldercareconsulting@yahoo.com. I look forward to hearing from you soon!

According to the National Alzheimer's Association, an estimated 5.4 million people have Alzheimer's Disease, and 15.2 million of their friends and family members provide 17.4 billion hours of unpaid care. Maybe you're the full-time caregiver for a spouse, parent, grandparent, or other loved one. Maybe you know someone who is. But the reality is this: At some point in our life, we will most likely all be touched by this horrible disease, which robs our loved ones of their precious memories, oftentimes very

HOOSIERS ENCOURAGED TO PROTECT AGAINST TICKS http://www.thewaynedalenews.com/heath/11563-hoosiers-encouraged-to-protect-against-ticks.html As Hoosiers continue to take advantage of the warm weather by spending more time outdoors, State Health officials urge Hoosiers to be aware and protect themselves from ticks.

Ticks are small, insect-like creatures that are often found in naturally vegetated areas or woodlands throughout Indiana. Ticks can transmit illnesses, such as Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain spotted fever. Last year, Indiana confirmed 101 cases of Lyme disease, two cases of Rocky Mountain spotted fever and 22 cases of Ehrlichiosis.

"When the weather stays warm, as it is in the summer, ticks are more active," said State Health Commissioner William VanNess, M.D. "It's important to know that ticks are carriers of a number of diseases and that all ticks should be considered infectious and capable of transmitting diseases."

When entering a grassy or wooded area where ticks are often present, the best way to prevent tick-transmitted diseases is to wear a long-sleeved shirt and

INDIANA REMAINS FISCAL ENVY OF NATION - Straight From The Senate http://www.thewaynedalenews.com/political/11564-indiana-remains-fiscal-envy-of-nation-straight-from-the-senate.html Indiana recently closed out another fiscal year of balanced budgets and significant reserves. As the national deficit continues to climb and other states operate in the red year after year, this is a welcome reminder of why it's great to be a Hoosier.

In Indiana, we maintain a commitment to fiscal responsibility by keeping taxes low and government efficient – concepts which seem to evade many states as well as Washington, D.C. We believe government should balance its checkbook just as millions of Hoosier workers and families do.

While the federal debt balloons toward $18 trillion, Indiana has decreased its debt by 50 percent in recent years. In addition to paying off our debts, we've been able to trim the fat on government bureaucracy and target taxpayer dollars to areas where they are needed most.

Our financial responsibility enables us to invest wisely in public services that support economic mobility – like education

THREE RIVERS FESTIVAL PARADE - Voice Of The Township http://www.thewaynedalenews.com/political/11565-three-rivers-festival-parade-voice-of-the-township.html I love a parade! When I attend the Three Rivers Festival, and especially the parade, I feel like I'm celebrating with friends. It's as though the City is throwing a huge party, and everyone is welcome. Parades seem to be a celebration of color. All of the bright and striking reds, blues, and yellows seem to excite the onlookers. Each of us shares in the excitement, and it results in a fun filled day.

Family members strategically plan before attending the parade, discussing where they will park, where they will sit, and where they will meet if someone gets separated by the commotion. They come early and set up their seats for a great view, and then patiently await the parade. Viewers line the street to watch entries of marching bands, floats, motorized vehicles, animals, and large balloons.

It's always special to get together with a group of family and friends. I

YOUR LEGACY IS IN YOUR HANDS http://www.thewaynedalenews.com/opinion/11566-your-legacy-is-in-your-hands.html Unless you keep close track of obscure holidays and observances, you probably didn't know that August is "What Will Be Your Legacy? Month." Still, you might want to use this particular month as a useful reminder to take action on what could be one of your most important financial goals: leaving a meaningful legacy.

A legacy isn't simply a document or a bunch of numbers — it's what you will be remembered for, and what you have left behind that will be remembered. It's essentially your chance to contribute positively to the future, whether that means providing financial resources for the next generation, helping those charitable organizations whose work you support, or a combination of both.

To create your legacy, you'll need to do some planning. And you can start by asking yourself a couple of key questions:

What are your goals?

MIDSUMMER BLACKBERRIES - News From The Hills http://www.thewaynedalenews.com/leisure/11572-midsummer-blackberries-news-from-the-hills.html Midsummer simmers along, with hot, humid days and sticky nights. The common oxeye daisies have given way to brightly colored black-eyed Susan's that stare boldly from large patches along the wayside. Spotted Joe-pye weed is beginning to appear in fields and meadows, showing its pale purple, fuzzy flower heads. All signs point to coming autumn.

This is a good blackberry summer. The berries hang heavy and ripe on their briers, waiting for eager hands to gather them. I can hear Daddy singing now, "Oh, huckleberry pie and blackberry pudding, and I'd give it all away for to hug Sally Gooden!" The blackberry pudding probably referred to "quick jam," as some called it and consisted of thickened and sweetened blackberries, eaten with hot biscuits and butter.

Grandpa O'Dell used to strap two zinc water buckets on his belt (he also wore galluses) and head for Pilot Knob to pick blackberries all day long.

The Death of an Irishman
(A friend told me this story and swore it was the truth. I enhanced it a little and changed the names to protect the not so innocent).
Two Irish friends were sitting in a pub having a jar or two and chatting about a chum who had just died that morning.
"Are you going to the funeral?" Liam asked Dudley.
"No."
"Why not?"
"Cause he ain't coming to mine."

SUMMER WEATHER PERFECT FOR MINOR PAINTING PROJECTS http://www.thewaynedalenews.com/outdoors/11575-summer-weather-perfect-for-minor-painting-projects.html Just because the hot weather's here doesn't mean you can't do something cool with your home exterior. Some small-scale painting projects can easily be completed early in the morning or late in the afternoon, times of the day when you won't wilt in the sun.

Spending just a couple of hours repainting the front door is a prime example, says Debbie Zimmer, paint and color expert for the Paint Quality Institute. "By switching to a completely different door color, you may be able to give your home an entirely new appearance," she says. "It's a great way to get a big return for a small amount of sweat equity."

Another smart move is to paint your shutters. .in stages. Take on just two at a time before taking off for the patio or pool; then repeat the process for as many days as necessary. You'll get more efficient as you go,

ANTHONY WAYNE ROTARY 5K TO STOMP OUT POLIO http://www.thewaynedalenews.com/outdoors/11577-anthony-wayne-rotary-5k-to-stomp-out-polio.html Every year one hundred plus walkers and runners descend on Shoaff Park the second Saturday in August to help Rotarians put an end to polio. This year is no exception. The sixth annual Walk Run to Eradicate Polio will take place on August 16th at 8:30am and all proceeds will go to Rotary International's program to end polio worldwide.

What is special about this campaign is its backing by the Gates Foundation which matches each donation 2-1. This is Anthony Wayne Rotary's largest fundraiser for the polio effort and every dollar goes to this cause.

Rotary International started their first project to vaccinate children in the Philippines in 1979 and, although it is rarely a thought in the U.S., it continues to be an issue for everyone because of a few countries where it is still prevalent as vaccinations are problematic.

THE PURGE: ANARCHY - At The Movies With Kasey http://www.thewaynedalenews.com/opinion/11578-the-purge-anarchy-at-the-movies-with-kasey.html Stuck in a week with nothing good to see, I took a chance on a movie I would never go to if it weren't for this column: The Purge: Anarchy. While the violence was less gratuitous than I anticipated, there was more social commentary than I expected. Unfortunately, however, the world and the critique of The Purge: Anarchy is pretty shopworn, resulting in a mediocre at-best movie.

The Purge: Anarchy takes place in the near future, after the New Founding Fathers of America have taken control of the country, fighting crime, unemployment, and other societal issues with an annual purge: 12 hours in which all crime is legal. While The Purge allegedly serves as a way for people to "release the beast," unleashing repressed aggression so they can be upstanding citizens the rest of the time, really the outburst of violence helps control the population, benefiting the wealthy and privileged by

PRUNING & DEAD-HEADING http://www.thewaynedalenews.com/outdoors/11579-pruning-dead-heading.html June/July are the times to get your pruning and dead-heading done as pruning in the fall is generally looked down upon.

Most evergreens such as junipers, euonymus and aborvitae are cutback during the month of June but now is still better than later. Dead-heading is simply the act of cleaning up all of the dead debris such as the spent flowers on annuals and the long stalks and flowers of your spring and summer perennials. The faster these dead flowers are removed from your annuals, the quicker you will get more flowers. With your perennials, the removal of these over-the-hill blossoms and stems will help to create stronger and healthier plants for next year.

The middle of the growing season is a great time to sprinkle slow release, granule fertilizers around all of your outdoor garden plants. Look for the words "Garden Fertilizer" on the label. Bone meal is a safe, organic

FREQUENT FLYING - A HEALTHY DAY http://www.thewaynedalenews.com/heath/11532-frequent-flying-a-healthy-day.html Most of us, at one time or another, have traveled for business. Some of us do this fairly often, and when we travel for business, we're usually getting where we're going by plane. Air travel used to be quick and easy. But lately, within the last ten years, maybe not so much. By now, we're used to long lines at security checkpoints, extended downtime waiting for our scheduled flights to depart, and an almost total absence of healthy food choices on our travel days. That said, there are several steps a smart traveler can take to help ensure that necessary travel does not take a toll on our health and overall well-being.

The key to healthy travel is preparation. We want to avoid two main problems. First, we want to prevent the strains and sprains that may befall us when we battle unwieldy luggage in the cramped quarters of airplane cabins.

A PERFECT GIFT FOR THE ELDERLY http://www.thewaynedalenews.com/heath/11533-a-perfect-gift-for-the-elderly.html If getting up and down from a chair or sofa is not as simple or safe as it used to be for a loved one, a power lift and recline chair may be a wonderful gift. Not only are lift chairs comfortable and practical, they provide safety for anyone finding it hard to get up without rocking forward to stand.

Selecting the right lift chair is important.

First, you must decide whether a single motor or dual motor chair has the needed features. A single motor chair offers both lift and recline features while a dual motor chair allows the footrest to move independent of the chair's back. This "infinite position" feature lets you elevate your legs without fully reclining the back and allows the user to recline to both the zero-gravity position and the Trendelburg position (feet above the head).

Whichever model you select the chair must be properly sized. This is

EMPLOYERS, STATE TEAM UP TO IMPROVE JOB TRAINING - STRAIGHT FROM THE SENATE http://www.thewaynedalenews.com/political/11535-employers-state-team-up-to-improve-job-training-straight-from-the-senate.html A recent survey by the Indiana Chamber of Commerce found that nearly 40 percent of Indiana employers left jobs open because they were unable to find qualified candidates.
As our state economy advances, we must have a workforce to match. Too many Hoosiers remain unemployed or underemployed because they are not equipped with the skills necessary to fill well-paying, in-demand jobs.

The effort to improve job training begins in our elementary schools and extends to programs aimed at re-training adults. In recent years, Indiana has maintained a strong focus on closing the skills gap and pioneering an inventive and effective workforce development plan.

In 2013, the Indiana General Assembly passed a law creating regional works councils that were tasked with evaluating vocational programs at Indiana high schools and finding innovative best practices. An additional group was formed to connect the state's education and workforce development systems with industry professionals to make sure

RIVERFRONT SURVEY - MESSAGE FROM THE MAYOR http://www.thewaynedalenews.com/political/11536-riverfront-survey-message-from-the-mayor.html I want to thank all of our residents who responded enthusiastically to the City's recent Riverfront Fort Wayne survey.

Nearly 2,600 people took our survey about what they'd like to see along the downtown riverfront. People are clearly excited about the momentum they see in our community and are looking forward to the continued growth and vibrancy that enhancing our riverfront will encourage.

The Uses and Activities Survey was primarily filled out online with some hard copies completed at Riverpalooza and several locations throughout Fort Wayne. Respondents expressed support for a wide variety of uses along the riverfront, including sitting places, mixed use development, winter activities, and entrepreneur space. They indicated overwhelming support for recreational opportunities both on and alongside the river, as well as for natural habitat space.

Recreation and natural habitat stood out as having the most interest from respondents. However, those taking the survey were also interested in a variety

MARRY MORRIS - VOICE OF THE TOWNSHIP http://www.thewaynedalenews.com/political/11537-marry-morris-voice-of-the-township.html I'd like to express well wishes to a friend of mine, Mary Morris. Mary recently retired from the Fort Wayne Housing Authority. I met Mary in 1972 when we both worked for the City of Fort Wayne in the Minimum Housing Department. We learned so much about helping others under the leadership of great people like Ed Elkins and William G. Williams. We worked on relocation projects such as the East Central Towers, the West Central Project, the downtown Civic Center and the downtown Senior Citizens' Center. During the relocation process, we worked with people who were required to leave their homes and find other housing. Most had no idea of how they would accomplish this; and didn't know what the future held for them. It seemed like each person being relocated was a friend who needed our help. Many didn't want to leave the home they had resided in

SHOULD YOU BE A HANDS-ON INVESTOR? http://www.thewaynedalenews.com/opinion/11538-should-you-be-a-hands-on-investor.html If you want to send your children or grandchildren to college, retire comfortably and achieve other important life goals, you will have to invest — it's that simple. But the process of investing can sometimes seem anything but simple. What can you do to gain confidence that you are making the right investment moves?

The answer may depend on how involved you want to be with your investment decisions. Initially, you might think that you would like to be totally "hands on." After all, how you save and invest your money is unquestionably a highly personal matter. And once you start exploring the investment world, you may find it fascinating, as it entails virtually every human endeavor imaginable: business, politics, science, the environment, and so on. But if you want to completely run your own show, you will need to put in a lot of work — such as studying the

AN ACCIDENTAL LIFE - BOOK NOOK http://www.thewaynedalenews.com/opinion/11545-an-accidental-life-book-nook.html AN ACCIDENTAL LIFE
By Pamela Binnings Ewen
B&H, 978-0-8054-6432-0
PB, 453 pgs, $14.99
This novel focuses on Rebecca and her lawyer husband Peter, who is working for the state of Georgia to prosecute a doctor who runs an abortion clinic. The lawsuit exposes what happens to the babies who survive abortions and what kind of rights they're entitled to. During the time the case is going on, Rebecca and Peter also find themselves expecting a child, and readers are given insight into Rebecca's emotional turmoil while she comes to grips with what this new addition will mean.
This story has an agenda, but it does not come off as a lecture or a sermon. Instead, by presenting characters passionate about their ethical beliefs and a story that is realistic in the way it examines all aspects of the abortion issue, we have drama working as a teaching tool.

BUSINESS - HOME COUNTRY http://www.thewaynedalenews.com/leisure/11546-business-home-country.html "You seem kinda low this morning, Sweetie," Marjorie said.
"Business has been kinda slow for a while now, and it's wedding season," he said.

Marvin Pincus' "business" of course, is free love counseling combined with free fly tying, in hopes of bringing connubial jocularity to anyone who might need it. Hey, a retired guy has to do something.

But just at that moment there was a knock on the door, and standing there was Three-Chord Cortez. T.C. looked anxiously up and down the street. It wouldn't look good for the fabled bunkhouse balladeer to be seen applying for love counseling.

Marvin took T.C. into his den and Marjorie brought the embarrassed cowhand some coffee. When the door had been safely closed, Cortez looked at Marvin.

"Mr. Pincus," he said, "you may not know it, but I kinda have a reputation for being a ladies' man," Marvin nodded. "But I guess I do okay

4TH OF JULY - NEWS FROM THE HILLS http://www.thewaynedalenews.com/leisure/11547-4th-of-july-news-from-the-hills.html A few days ago was America's birthday. Independence Day, commonly known as the Fourth of July, is the most celebrated birthday in the United States, commemorating the signing of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. We declared our independence from the United Kingdom, known then as the Kingdom of Great Britain.

It was celebrated in "Happy Birthday fashion" with patriotic displays, parades, political speeches, barbecues, picnics, and other celebrations. We still live up to the letter that John Adams wrote to his wife Abigail the first of July, 1776 in which he stated, "It ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty."

Then he went on to state, "It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires and illuminations from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forevermore."

A TAILOR AND HIS SEWING BOARD - AROUND THE FRAME http://www.thewaynedalenews.com/leisure/11548-a-tailor-and-his-sewing-board-around-the-frame.html ATF-071814Last April when I traveled to the Harlan United Methodist Church biennial quilt show, I visited Harlan Haus Antiques where I meet owner Karma Gottfried. I relate to her my interest in vintage textiles and antique sewing accessories. Karma shows me something special. It is a wooden board with a curved piece on one length side to snug up to your mid-section. In cursive writing it states "Use Corticelli Sewing Silk" and along the bottom inches 1-36 are engrained in the wood.

Karma tells me how she purchased it from a distant cousin of a woman whose grandfather had a tailor shop on West Main Street, a block west of Coney Island Hot Dog Stand. The man dies in the late 1930s and the tailor shop closes. His wife and daughter move all of the tailor shop supplies to their home where they are relegated to

TAMMY - AT THE MOVIES WITH KASEY BUTCHER http://www.thewaynedalenews.com/opinion/11552-tammy-at-the-movies-with-kasey-butcher.html Whether from her days as Sookie on Gilmore Girls or her Oscar-nominated role in Bridesmaids, many people have become big Melissa McCarthy fans. Her over-the-top characters and knack for physical comedy have produced a string of box-office hits including this summer's Tammy. As much as I would like to see McCarthy playing a different type of character, and as aimless as Tammy is, I enjoyed seeing McCarthy at work again.

In Tammy, McCarthy's eponymous character loses her job and her husband, prompting the mature decision to run away from home. With her diabetic, alcoholic Grandma Pearl (Susan Sarandon) providing money, transportation, and unwanted company, Tammy sets off for anywhere-but-here, which turns out the be Niagara Falls. On a stop in Louisville, Tammy and Pearl meet Bobby (Mark Duplass) and his father, Earl (Gary Cole). Earl and Pearl hit it off immediately, much to Bobby and Tammy's consternation. Things between Pearl and

PRUNE THOSE GARDEN MUMS NOW http://www.thewaynedalenews.com/outdoors/11553-prune-those-garden-mums-now.html Garden mums, chyrsanthemums are easily fooled into thinking that every time the temperatures outside at night cool down just a little, it must be Fall, so they immediately want to set bud and flower. The problem is that just as fast as they set bud, it gets warm again and the flower buds never fully develop. It's true that some of them may try to bloom but those blossoms are not quite the same as the garden mums that bloom in the fall.

Garden mums are both temperature and day-length sensitive which means that when the day length is short (such as in the Fall) and the nighttime temperatures are cool, they want to bloom. July 4th (or soon after) is cut-back time so even though your mums have budded, it's not going to work out for you. Those mums need to be cut back, at least by 1/3, so that

To provide them with the advantages we didn't have is every parent's dream. Achieving the dream can be difficult and even a little overwhelming. There are so many things to think about when considering orthodontic treatment: time constraints, budget concerns and who to trust to give your child a healthy, happy and confident smile.

If you've been hiding your smile because you have crooked teeth or gaps between them, it's time to see an orthodontist. You will be surprised at how today's techniques can straighten that smile! And if you are apprehensive about traditional braces, clear brackets or Invisalign may be your preferred treatment option.

These committees lay the groundwork for future legislation and are a critical component of Indiana's lawmaking process.

The Legislative Council, a bipartisan group of senators and representatives, establishes study committee priorities each year. As vice-chair of the council, my goal is to make sure our state's most pressing challenges are given the time and energy needed to find effective solutions.

This summer and fall, study committees will consider several important topics, including tax reform, education, veterans' issues and more. These committees will gather expert testimony, hear from members of the public and provide recommendations to the full General Assembly before the 2015 legislative session begins in January.

MESSAGE FROM THE MAYOR - FAIRFIELD DITCH http://www.thewaynedalenews.com/political/11507-message-from-the-mayor-fairfield-ditch.html Our commitment to investing in neighborhoods is being demonstrated by the flood control project in the Dalevue-Fernwood neighborhood along the Fairfield Ditch.

We're building an earthen berm, to hold back flood water, and constructing an already planned larger diameter, 48-inch stormwater pipe and inlets. The project will protect the area up to a 100-year flood event.

Significant progress has been made since our April groundbreaking ceremony. Approximately 90% of the new storm sewer has been installed and is working. During recent rain events, City Utilities crews have not had to pump stormwater in the neighborhood. In addition, construction of the earthen berm is nearly 30% complete. The improvement project is on track for a fall completion which includes final grading, seeding, tree planting and other restoration related tasks.

The low-lying area along the Fairfield Ditch, in particular along Dalevue Drive and Fernwood Avenue, has experienced chronic flooding since the 1950s. For more than 10 years,

Still, we have to keep working to earn some freedoms — such as financial freedom. But by making the right moves, you may eventually enjoy your own Financial Independence Day.

Here are a few such moves to consider:
•Set free your vision. Your first step in moving toward financial independence is to establish a vision of what this freedom might look like. Ask yourself some key questions: When do I want to retire? What do I want to do during my retirement years? How can I be confident that I won't outlive my financial resources? The answers can help you develop a clear picture of where you want to go — which will make it much easier to create a financial strategy for getting there.

UTILITY BILLS - VOICE OF THE TOWNSHIP http://www.thewaynedalenews.com/political/11509-utility-bills-voice-of-the-township.html We have recently had a large number of clients coming in with utility bills that have service scheduled for disconnect. It is very important for clients to request assistance in a timely manner, before the utilities are disconnected or scheduled for shutoff. When utilities are shut off, sometimes the entire bill and an additional deposit must be paid before the utilities will be turned back on. Securing payment for a deposit can be difficult for many of our clients. Don't let bills pile up month after month before coming in to request assistance.

The hot temperatures that we've been experiencing will result in higher utility bills for many of us. Here are some tips that may help lower your utility bill.

SUMMER WEATHER - NEWS FROM THE HILLS http://www.thewaynedalenews.com/leisure/11510-summer-weather-news-from-the-hills.html Summer weather has settled down upon our hills with resulting heat and humidity, while hound dogs seek out a shady spot and the youngsters head for the nearest swimming pool. The early garden crops are flourishing in the warm weather and we are beginning to enjoy the first fresh vegetables. Raspberries are starting to ripen; black, velvety caps of sweetness. Soon the blackberries will be in season and we are ready to gather the hill's bountiful goodness.

There is a price to pay however, from hoeing and weeding the garden to fighting off sweat bees and scratching chiggers as we pick the blackberries and raspberries. It is worth the battle to enjoy a hunk of blackberry cobbler warm from the oven, or sit down to a plate of new potatoes, fried squash and leaf lettuce with chopped green onions—in a bacon grease and vinegar dressing. It makes the hot weather worthwhile.

CHEF - AT THE MOVIES WITH KASEY BUTCHER http://www.thewaynedalenews.com/opinion/11512-chef-at-the-movies-with-kasey-butcher.html Every now and then when I check the movie listings, I see a movie that I had never heard of before. Maybe I missed the trailers or maybe the marketing budget was tiny, but Chef was completely off my radar. I'm really glad that amongst summer blockbusters and cartoon dragons, I decided to give this under-promoted film a shot.

Chef opens on Chef Carl Casper (Jon Favreau) struggling with the stifling demands of restaurant owner Riva (Dustin Hoffman), whose insistence that he continue to cook the same menu year after year threatens Casper's reputation as a chef.

Andora "Andi" Boggs isn't the only Andora Boggs in Killdeer, Ohio.

After their parents' sudden deaths, twelve-year-old Andi and her older sister Bethany arrive in Killdeer to live with their zany aunt in a house that has belonged to the Boggs family for decades. Andi is cleaning the attic with her new friend, Colin Carter, when they discover an old trunk labeled "Andora." Andi and Colin dig through Depression-era history to discover what happened to the other Andora, learning who in Killdeer can be trusted along the way.

Andi's story is clever, enticing, and thoroughly enjoyable. Readers will feel as if they're jumping on their bikes to pedal around Killdeer with Andi and Colin. Flower allows Andi to be cynical about religion after her parents' death, but prayer plays a powerful role in the story's climax. This
