About this title

Synopsis:

Unable to get along with her new stepmother, eleven-year-old Lindy goes to live with the elderly lady next door, returning only after the birth of a baby sister, an event which softens hurt and angry feelings.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-7 Lindy's story is set in 1930s New Orleans, but modern readers will notice the historical detail less than the relevance of Lindy's situation to readers today. Her mother has left with a traveling salesman, and Lindy is left with her father and a new young stepmother, Millicent. Feeling abandoned by her father and disliked by Millicent, Lindy moves next door with an elderly woman who loves her and wants to adopt her. When Millicent's baby arrives prematurely, Lindy returns home to care for her stepmother and the new baby, who precipitates a convincing compromise between Lindy and Millicent. Lindy learns by negative example from her lonely neighbor that people, even adults, need to make compromises in order to get along. But not all of the compromises here are Lindy'sboth father and stepmother also make changes in their ways in order to make room for both daughters. The historical background is interesting, but it is certainly secondary to the story of a new family finally finding out how to live as one. Readers will find this story compelling, no matter what their family backgrounds. Ruth K. MacDonald, Department of English, New Mexico State University, Las Cruces
