    Addie's Dakota Winter

    Addie's Dakota Winter is the continuation of Addie's story begun in Addie Across the Prairie

    "Addie can't wait for school to begin. All she wants is one special friend. But scrawny, scrappy Tilla Bergstrom isn't the friend she imagined. Addie even thins Tilla lies! But she'll have to do until somebody better comes along. The girls are having fun -- until some bullies threaten Tilla because of Addie's lie. When Till disappears, Addie sets out on the long trek to her house to apologize and to bring her back. But Tilla can't return to school. And Addie is soon trapped in a blinding blizzard, fighting for her life -- and the friend she almost lost!" [Annotation quoted from cover Minstrel® Pocket Book edition]

    "Lawlor once again captures the pioneer spirit -- the hardships and sorrow as well as the joys and laughter -- and shapes believable characters and incidents." -- ALA Booklist
