Jolly is seventeen. She can't really spell. She doesn't have much of a job. And she has two little kids from two different, absent fathers. Jolly knows she can't cope with Jilly and Jeremy all by herself. No one replies but Verna LaVaughn, who's only fourteen. How much help can she be? Then LaVaughn takes the first steps toward building her own future, and Jolly begins the longs low process of turning the lemons of her life into lemonade. Written in sixty-six chapters with text lines that break at natural speaking phrases, this is a startling novel by an extraordinary writer.
LaVaughn has high aspirations: she wants to go to college, something that people in her neighborhood rarely do. To make money for college, she takes a job babysitting Jeremy and Jilly, the two I inherited about 30 of these for my middle school classroom, but I certainly don't need them.
This novel-in-verse is good, but not something with which I want to teach my rural, semi-privileged kids Virginia Euwer Wolff is an accomplished violinist and former elementary school and high school English teacher.
