About this title

Synopsis:

When ten year old Rainey Dougherty's mother is hospitalized for mental instability, Rainey and her four siblings find themselves at the mercy of Merle, their irreverently funny and bitter aunt, who comes up to the country from the Bronx with her troubled fourteen year old daughter Joan, to take care of that goddamn bunch of nuts she knows these children are. For Rainey, this starts a summer of enlightenment where she learns about the realities of life through the eyes of innocence. We chart Rainey's course through a year that is often harrowing, sometimes hilarious, but always hopeful. Merle's voice is the one clear note in Rainey's head as she begins a season without her mother, a season that brings both Joan and Rainey again and again to the brink of disaster.

About the Author:

By the age of 23 author Diane Freund found herself with five children and spent the next 18 years as a waitress in order to support her brood. It was while working as a waitress that she saw quite clearly what her future would be if she did not make an extraordinary effort to change her life. In an amazing story of triumph over adversity, she returned to school and now holds an M.F.A. in Fiction from the University of Arizona, Tucson and is the Assistant Professor of English at the University of Arizona South in Sierra Vista, AZ.
