Synopsis: Hildy Corrigan felt like the first day of school would never come! Ever since their family had arrived in California, her hopes and dreams were all focused on the Lone River Grammar School. If Hildy proves herself to be an excellent student, her goal of attending college to become a teacher and to someday get her "forever home" has a chance of becoming a reality. Being the oldest child of poor parents in the Great Depression, it is Hildy's only chance.
But the odds against her are very high. Good grades are one thing, but college also requires money and even with her part-time job after school, she'll never earn enough. When a cash prize is offered for the top academic and civic-minded seventh-grader, Hildy's determination to win it is met by a school administration firmly set against her. She's an unwelcomed outsider, an "Okie," and Hildy and her cousin Ruby are in for big problems at school.
The rescue of a kidnapped child becomes an even greater problem. What difference can Hildy make?
The Terror They Face Could End Hildy's Story!
About the Author: "A shoe with a 3.5 inch cork sole made a writer out of me." says bestselling author Lee Roddy. "I was born sick and handicapped. Poor health prevented me from leading a normal boy's life for ten years. During my confinement, I became an avid reader. Fortunately, surgeries corrected my problems. . . but I remained a reader for life!"
At the young age of twenty two, Lee decided to seriously pursue his writing career. He packed his things and moved to Hollywood, California. It wasn't long before he was hired with a Los Angeles advertising agency writing copy for major corporations. It wasn't quite the type of writing he had in mind. . .but it was a start!
Before long, Lee had moved on in his writing career. As a staff writer for NBC, ABC, and CBS, he wrote radio network dramas. One of the highlights of his career was the sale of his novel The Life and Times of Grizzly Adams to NBC. It later became a prime- time television series for the network, and was viewed by 28 million viewers weekly.
Since 1974, Lee has written countless books. Most significantly, he wrote the Jesus film for Campus Crusade for Christ, which is now in more than three hundred languages and is viewed worldwide. He has had five of his books made into major motion pictures, and has been on the New York Times bestseller list on several occasions. AN AMERICAN ADVENTURE and BETWEEN TWO FLAGS are two popular series for young adults that present exciting stories set in historic America.
These days Lee focuses on his life with his wife, children, grandchildren, his work, and his church. He is a highly sought after public speaker and prolific writer.size : 5.2 x 8
