Synopsis: Although Arly Poole seems bound to follow in his father's footsteps as a field worker in Jailtown, Florida, where his family lives in 1927 in the shadow of a cruel boss, his world suddenly seems larger when a schoolteacher comes to town.
From Publishers Weekly:
In 1927, Jailtown, Fla., is not the best place for an 11-year-old. Arly Poole, the son of a cucumber picker who looks "like he lost every fight in his life . . . and never knowed shade." has little to look forward to. When Arly reaches working age, he too will be a virtual slave to the owner of Jailtown. Then President Calvin Coolidge's Rural Education Act brings a schoolteacher to Jailtown. Miss Binnie Hoe rescues Arly (she calls herself her students' "ticket" out of the cycle of the town's poverty), but this is no sugar-coated tale: Arly's father dies, and a girl Arly tries to help ends up going to work at the local house of ill repute. Peck pungently combines earthy dialect, good storytelling and an authentic locale. Arly's life in Jailtown will linger in readers' memories for a long time. Ages 10-up.
