Synopses & Reviews
The astounding first book in Virigina Euwer Wolff's MAKE LEMONADE trilogy, which continues with the award-winning TRUE BELIEVER.
LaVaughn needed a part-time job. What she got was a baby-sitting gig with Jolly, an unwed teen mother. With two kids hanging in the balance, they need to make the best out of life -- and they can only do it for themselves and each other.
Wolff's daring, blank verse novel is an eloquent, realistic portrait of a teenage mother struggling to keep ahead and a fourteen-year-old babysitter who tries to help her through love and understanding.
