Quaking - Kathryn Erskine

Being passed around from relative to relative isn't fun; Matt would know. (Her name is Matt NOT Matilda.) She gets put with a Quaker family. She doesn't like her school, especially with a teacher and a bully on her back at all times. She has to watch her back, and she doesn't have any friends to do it. She decides to go to a Quaker meeting with Sam her caretaker. She thinks it's okay since nobody talks and it's a way to spend her lonely evenings. But when things are happening to the town's peace houses Matt doesn't know what to do. And when the Quaker meeting house gets attacked...I would recommend this book for people who aren't fitting in too well. 236 pages
