The Mutual Admiration Society by Lesley Kagen. Published by Lake Union 

Lesley Karen knows how to touch readers hearts. Her latest takes place in the 1950s and tells the story of 11 year old Tessie, the self appointed president of the Mutual Admiration Society, who believes she’s seen a murder and a body dumped in the cemetery behind her house. She’s trying to protect her “weird” sister and dealing with the death of her father and keeping her mean next door neighbor from having the state place Tessie and her sister into foster care. A beautifully written coming of age story
