9780061583049: This Full House (Make Lemonade Trilogy)

Each discovery disturbs the arrangements of the known world, and it is our job to stay alert to all possibilities.

LaVaughn believes she is keeping alert to all possibilities. She has made it through the projects, she's gotten over heartbreak, she's grown up, and now she's been admitted to the Women in Science program that might finally be her ticket to COLLEGE. But the discoveries she makes during her senior year in high school--two girls pregnant, with very few options--disturb everything in her known world. And in an effort to bring together people who should love each other, she jeopardizes the one prize she has sought her whole life long.

When do you know whether you're doing the right thing? What happens when you can't find a way to make lemonade out of lemons? Virginia Euwer Wolff takes on the biggest questions--about life and love, certainly, but also about girls and women, sacrifice and compassion--and has something quite rev-elatory to say about them in this full house.

From AudioFile:

Heather Simms does a remarkable job giving voice to the powerful conclusion to Wolff's Make Lemonade trilogy. Simms's extraordinary rhythm fully projects the free-verse form of the book. She excels at the up-and-down emotions of 17-year-old LaVaughn, who wins placement in an after-school science program, imagines a life for herself in medicine, and then discovers a secret that may threaten her future. Simms's presentation of LaVaughn's determination to "act according to your conscience/ even when you don't want to" comes across partly because of the strength of her diverse portrayals of the story's minor characters. Their economic and intellectual backgrounds are clearly reflected in their dialogue and attitudes. S.W. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
