Through the people of Manifest, Abilene experiences the power in a story. It can change us in the telling and in the listening. As writers, readers, librarians, storytellers -- we are all diviners. We reveal things, make them known, especially to ourselves.
-- from Clare Vanderpool's Newbery Award acceptance speech
