The Forrests, by Emily Perkins.

Quick-paced & detail-oriented (acute attention to the intricacies of the physical world) with some amazing word constructions (or words)–“splodged with rain,” “scuddy clouds,” “kick [water] with shonky glee” (of course they’re all better in context)– this family story is read-worthy.
