An Amazon Best Book of the Month! “Beautiful, mysterious and deeply satisfying.” —Rebecca Stead, Newbery Medal-winning author of When You Reach Me and Goodbye Stranger

The world tilted for Elodee this year, and now it’s impossible for her to be the same as she was before. Not when her feelings have such a strong grip on her heart. Not when she and her twin sister, Naomi, seem to be drifting apart. So when Elodee’s mom gets a new job in Eventown, moving seems like it might just fix everything.

Indeed, life in Eventown is comforting and exciting all at once. Their kitchen comes with a box of recipes for Elodee to try. Everyone takes the scenic way to school or work—past rows of rosebushes and unexpected waterfalls. On blueberry-picking field trips, every berry is perfectly ripe.

Sure, there are a few odd rules, and the houses all look exactly alike, but it’s easy enough to explain—until Elodee realizes that there are only three ice cream flavors in Eventown. Ever. And they play only one song in music class.

Everything may be “even” in Eventown, but is there a price to pay for perfection—and pretending?

    When Elodee and her sister, Naomi, move into a supposedly "perfect" town, Naomi fits in perfectly. But Elodee? Elodee had always been quirky, so it was no wonder that she didn't fit in. Here in Eventown, it never rains. No one makes mistakes. Nothing bad ever happens. No bad memories are kept. But something seems wrong in the town, and Elodee is the only one who feels it. Can she discover the hidden secret behind it? I thought that this book was written really well, but the only thing I didn;t like about it was that it got kinda slow later on. It also ends with loose threads. Other than that, a really good book. The first chapter got me hooked and I finished it in a single day!
