###### Question:

from Missing May by Cynthia Rylant The green and white road signs kept teasing us along with mentions of Capitol Street so many miles ahead, and we strained our eyes for a glimpse of the gold leafed dome, like Columbus looking for a continent. Then...there it was, and I know it was better than all three of us figured it would be.
