The Search for Belle Prater

I am doing my book report on the story of The Search for Belle Prater. The author of this book is Ruth White. The genre of my book is realistic fiction. The book starts of when Woodrow Prater realizes one day that her Grandma is missing. One day, on the coal-mining holler in Virginia, Belle Prater (the Grandma) mysteriously disappeared. When Woodrow got the news, he went searching for her for several weeks, but never found her. She has been missing for over a year but, on New Years Eve (Woodrow's birthday) gets an anonymous phone call telling where her mother might be, but hangs up in the middle of the conversation. Woodrow eventually found where the call came from, so he goes searching again with his best friend and cousin, Gypsy. After that, they still didn't find her, but they did find a note. The search continues. I enjoy this book very much. The reason it's a good book is because of the twists and turns that happen through the story. The book is suited for all ages 9 and above.

Quick, satisfying read

The follow-up book to Belle Prater's Boy was satisfying. While it wasn't quite as enchanting as the first book, it did intrigue and entertain this reader. I would recommend it to anyone who read the first book, although the new book summarizes the basic plot, so it's not completely a necessity. Great book!

Conclusion to Belle Prater's Boy

One morning Belle Prater just disappeared from her Virginia mountain home leaving her son Woodrow and husband. Woodrow, now living with his grandparents, is driven to find his mother. Cousin Gypsy goes with him in the search. Along the way they meet some interesting people. This story seems to be too pat in some of the plot lines but the story will be welcomed by fans of Belle Prater's Boy. The mystery of Belle's disappearance is finally solved.
