Read full description of the books:

There are things precocious children say, there are things quaint children say, and then there are things that children's literature authors make up which even the quaintest and most precocious child would not say, and this book's full of them. Children's literature protagonists seem to have remarkable abilities to say full (and highly quotable) sentences to all and sundry. They do not um, err, quote from pop culture, swear, or get tongue-tied, like the children I know in real life. This makes them more interesting to read about, I guess, combined with the drama of their underparented lives and the quaintness of their settings and the sheer absence of screen time in their lives (also totally unlike the children I know in real life.)

While far more fun to read, this book shares many tropes-of-predictable-Newbery-winners with Summer of the Gypsy Moths. Kinda Higher Power of Luckyish too. To wit:

-absent parents
-rocky relationship with a nemesis child, guaranteed to blossom into "uneasy alliance" and area of growth for both children
-quaint setting
-beloved text of some kind to provide solace and charming phrases (Rather than a text per se, Mo and her guardian use military terminology.)
-wise, quirky older adult-friend to provide counsel (in this case Mo's two current guardians and neighbors)

At least in this book I can be grateful for the following did-nots:
-Turnage did not make auto racing or military discipline into an extended metaphor for life.
-Turnage did not make absolutely every wise, quirky, older adult-friend turn out to be just as doggone honest and caring as they seem at first. Surprise!
-She did not resolve the central absent-parents issue too neatly. (Emotionally neatly, yes, but in terms of plots and hard facts, nah.)
