Otis, Willie, and Hibernia are three children with a lot in common: they've all lost a loved one, they each have secret dreams, and they won't stop fighting for what they want.

This is a wonderful story set in 1936. The story and characters draw you in from the start. This book should easily be considered for a Coretta Scott King award.
