Coretta Scott King Award winner.

I haven't been to Heaven, but I've been to Dayton, back when my relatives were living there. Ohio is the 17th state and the "Buckeye State" - the Ohio Buckeye is the state tree.

From the Powell's Books website:

Publisher Comments:

Marley has lived in Heaven since she was two years old, when her mother found a postcard postmarked HEAVEN, OH on a park bench and decided that was where she wanted to raise her family.

And for twelve years, Marley's hometown has lived up to its name. She lives in a house by the river, has loving parents, a funny younger brother, good friends, and receives frequent letters from her mysterious Uncle Jack. Then one day a letter arrives form Alabama, and Marley's life is turned upside down. Marley doesn't even know who she is anymore — but where can she go for answers, when she's been deceived by the very people she should be able to trust the most?

2016 update: not sure this is the right cover, but it's more interesting than the generic one.

Here's another copy on my BookCrossing shelf.
