Publisher Comments:

When Gayle gets into trouble with her boyfriend, her mother sends the street-smart 14-year-old?and her baby, Jose?down to Georgia, to live with Uncle Luther and his family. There?s nothing to do, nowhere to go, and no one around except kneesock-wearing, Jesus-praising cousin Cookie. Then Gayle meets Great, the family matriarch?and her stories of the past begin to change how Gayle sees her future. ?Williams-Garcia has surpassed herself.?She has set these fictional characters? firmly in the real world while still allowing them to rise from the pages and into readers? hearts and imaginations.? ?The Horn Book, starred review

Gayle's fourteen and already has one baby; after she gets pregnant and has an abortion, her mother sends her south to live with her aunt and uncle in Georgia. At first she only thinks about escape, but gradually comes to be part of the family, after bonding with her fiesty great-grandmother, called Great. A quick read, and totally engaging; it manages to be both funny and moving and also totally realistic, which is an impressive feat.
