Frederik Sandwich and the Earthquake That Couldn't Possibly Be by Kevin John Scott
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
It's never clear what's wrong with Frederik's name, but it is very clear that he's been ostracized for whatever it is that's wrong. That wrong-ness also leads to his being afraid/unafraid of finding out why there was no earthquake, and what the very old, very weird train that shouldn't be running to stations that don't exist. I loved Frederik's voice and his bravery while insisting that all he wants is to just be left alone to go about his business. This will be a huge hit with my MG readers.
