Land of a Hundred Wonders By Lesley Kagen

"What would you do if you were in a car accident where both of your parents died and you banged your head very badly? Gibby McGraw of Cray Ridge, Kentucky wants to be a reporter, it’s one of the few things she remembers doing after her accident. The only problem is, Gibby is NQR, or Not Quite Right by her Grampa’s standards. She forgets everything, and doesn’t know what is appropriate or not.
She could just be saying, “Hi” to someone at the Top O’ the Mornin’ Diner where she
