The White Gates by Bonnie Ramthun.
In this action-packed tale set in a Colorado resort town, twelve-year-old Torin (Tor) and his mother get a chilly reception when they move to Snow Park, where his mother has been hired as the town physician. They soon find out that residents' less than welcoming attitude has to do with an aged Ute woman's half-century-old curse against doctors and healers. Believing more in foul play than old curses, Tor wants to get to the bottom of things, especially after his mother's first patient unexpectedly dies. With the help of fellow outcasts Drake and Raine, a descendant of that Ute woman, he discovers a web of deceit and greed. Solutions to puzzles come as swiftly and dramatically as an avalanche that nearly takes Tor's life. The novel comes with distinctive locations and thrilling snowboard scenes for the winter sports fan. Copies of this Truman Award nominee are available at the library. Join us for a lively discussion. Snacks provided.
