About this title

Synopsis:

For thirteen-year old Kate, being poor in a small rural Florida town means feeling ashamed and isolated. At school, her classmates laugh at her old clothes and wom shoes. Things are not much better at home. Kate's mother is working long hours at a dairy farm to keep up the payments on their tiny farm. Kate has to keep an eye on her brothers--Justin is old enough to talk about running away, Chip is young enough to keep wandering off. But one day, the family's goat gets loose and wanders down the road. That's when Kate meets the Wilsons, a tight knit, middle-class African-American family. Kate is particularly drawn to Ruby, the glamorous grown daughter who has recentlyretumed home from New York City. As Kate begins to spend time with Ruby in town she becomes aware of the undercurrent of discrimination and prejudice that runs through her community, and the complex roles of race and class in her own relationships. Rosa Jordan offers readers a gripping, empathetic tale of how two families come together despite small town prejudices and cultural differences. In doing so, she provides a window into the larger problems in America, where class and race often divide people.
