Tugs Esther Button was born to a luckless family. Buttons don't presume to be singers or dancers. They aren't athletes or artists, good listeners or model citizens.

Until tomboy Tugs befriends the popular Aggie Millhouse, wins a brand-new Brownie camera in the Independence Day raffle, and stumbles into a mystery only she can solve, she looks at her hapless family and sees her own reflection looking back. But it's a summer of change, and it just may be that in the end, being a Button is precisely what one clumsy, funny, spirited, and observant young heroine decides to make of it.

Award-winning author Anne Ylvisaker has trained her own observant eye on a small Iowa town in 1929 to craft a riotously endearing portrait of a family like no other.

    " What a gem! Everyone in Tugs' extended family believes that the Buttons are folks that never have any good luck. But Tugs is not going to be held back by the preconceptions of her family members or the others who live in their small Iowa town. When a dapper stranger comes to town raising money to bring the town a newspaper, Tugs has suspicions right away. But everyone else she talks to is contributing money to what she is afraid may be a scam. Not only is Tugs a funny and spirited character, but so are Grandma and Aggie and the twins Eldora and Elmira. You'll feel like you know all these people from the 1929 midwestern town! "
