About this title

Synopsis:

FOR USE IN SCHOOLS AND LIBRARIES ONLY. Octobia May is girl filled with questions. Her heart condition makes her special - and, some folks would argue, gives this ten-year-old powers that make her a ""wise soul."" Thank goodness for Auntie, who convinces Octobia's parents to let her live in her boarding house that is filled with old folks. That's when trouble, and excitement, and wonder begin. Auntie is non-traditional. She's unmarried and has plans to purchase other boarding homes and hotels. At a time when children, and especially girls, are ""seen, not heard,"" Auntie allows Octobia May the freedom and expression of an adult. When Octobia starts to question the folks in her world, an adventure and a mystery unfold that beg some troubling questions: Who is black and who is ""passing"" for white? What happens when a vibrant African American community must face its own racism? And, perhaps most important: Do vampires really exist?
