Publisher Comments:

One of twelve siblings growing up in Depression-era Baltimore, Edith isnand#8217;t quite sure of who she is. Between working at her fatherand#8217;s diner, taking care of her younger siblings, and living in the shadow of her more mature sisters, she feels lost in a sea of siblings. When a kind teacher encourages Edith to be a teacher herself one day, Edith sees prospects for a future all her own. Full of joy, pain, humor, and sadness, this novel in verse is an enduring portrait of one familyand#8217;s pursuit of the American dream.

Set in the depression era Baltimore, Looking for Me is filled with the joy, pain, humor, and sadness of a real immigrant family pursuing the American dream.

I hate that cat.
