This sensitive story is about the relationship between LaVaughn, a 12-year-old girl determined to escape the poverty of her upbringing, and a struggling single mother for whom she babysits. It explores themes of friendship, family and young women determined to build a future for themselves.
'A spare, beautifully crafted depiction of a fourteen-year-old whose goal of escaping poverty is challenged by friendship with a single teenage mother. These girls could be from more than one ethnic group and almost any inner city. Powerfully moving.' Kirkus'This is a book you must read. It will change you, maybe a little, maybe a lot. It doesn't matter. Just read it. That's all I ask.' Sara Windgate Gray (18), In Brief
