Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Jolly is seventeen. She can't really spell. She doesn't have much of a job. And she has two little kids from two different, absent fathers.

Jolly knows she can't cope with Jilly and Jeremy all by herself. So she posts a notice on the school bulletin board: BABYSITTER NEEDED BAD. No one replies but Verna LaVaughn, who's only fourteen. How much help can she be?

For a while, Jolly, Jilly, Jeremy, and LaVaughn are an extraordinary family. Then LaVaughn takes the first steps toward building her own future, and Jolly begins the longs low process of turning the lemons of her life into lemonade.

Written in sixty-six chapters with text lines that break at natural speaking phrases, this is a startling novel by an extraordinary writer.

Synopsis:

An award-winning novel about growing up and making choices

Viginia Euwer Wolff's groundbreaking novel, written in free verse, tells the story of fourteen-year-old LaVaughn, who is determined to go to college--she just needs the money to get there. When she answers a babysitting ad, LaVaughn meets Jolly, a seventeen-year-old single mother with two kids by different fathers. As she helps Jolly make lemonade out of the lemons her life has given her, LaVaughn learns some lessons outside the classroom.

Synopsis:

Virginia Euwer Wolff writes about tenacious people. In Make Lemonade she tells the story of Jolly--17-years-old, barely literate, with two kids from two different, absent fathers--and how she begins the slow process of building a future for herself. This is another startling novel by an extraordinary writer.
