9780763622862: Hattie on Her Way

As she struggles to navigate polite nineteenth-century society, the feisty Hattie learns the difficult truth about a family mystery — and discovers her own capacity for forgiveness and love.

Now that Pa has plunked her down at Grandmother's in Kingston to get a good education like Ma, Hattie Belle Basket has traded her rough boy's overalls for a blue checked dress that matches her eyes. But prettying up her rustic Hill Hawk ways is not so easy, and Hattie is sure she will never be at home in this fancy gingerbread house, where her prim grandmother and the buzzardlike cook continually remind her she can't compare with her sweet, beloved late mother. Even her tutor, Horace Bottle, seems more interested in food than he is in teaching. And now the stuck-up girl next door is taunting her — with rumors that a sinister fate has befallen Hattie's absent grandfather. Could someone in Grandmother's house be harboring an unspeakable secret?

About the Author:

Clara Gillow Clark is the author of HILL HAWK HATTIE. She says of its sequel, HATTIE ON HER WAY, "Like Hattie, I attended a one-room school and lived in a rural area. Shortly after my father died, we moved to a town that seemed cold and frightening at first. In this new setting, I faced the challenge of being a tall misfit alongside petite girls who wore nice dresses and shiny shoes and knew the proper etiquette of birthday treats and valentines. Hattie's story is much tougher than my own, but we share many of the same emotional struggles, experiencing both loss and healing, and searching for sense and meaning in a topsy-turvy world."

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

Up close she was not so pretty. She had a round, flat face with little piggy eyes and a stuck-up nose, but she had the loveliest yellow curls that bounced when she walked, and bobbed when she moved her head, and boinged when she patted them, which she did pretty regular.

"I'm Ivy Victoria — after the Queen of England — Blackmore Vandermeer," she said in a superior, knowing way. "You may be a girl, but I think you should know that you look like a boy. Why is your hair so short?"

Right then and there, I knew I wasn't going to like her or her curls. I did not have that nice warm feeling like when I'd met Jasper. "None of your business," I said. . . .

"You talk funny, too. Did you know that?" she said.

"I talk with my mouth, same as you," I said.

"I mean, you sound like a country bumpkin. Do you know what that means?" She spoke slowly, like I was ignorant or something worse.

I nodded. Yup, I was pretty sure that was like being called a Hill Hawk and uncouth. I grabbed my hat off the ground and pushed it on my head.

She got a sneaky look then. "You might be fun to play games with," she said. "Come over here now."

"Can't," I said. I was not about to take orders from the bossy likes of her. "My grandmother is waiting for me."

"Please?" she said, in a pleading sort of way. "I'll let you play with my ball."

I wet my lips. I wanted to bounce that ball all right. Maybe she just wanted a friend.

But then she pressed her face up against the fence. "Why doesn't your grandmother wear black?" she said.

A cold chill went down my spine. "Why should she?" I asked.
