Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“At 11, Emma has a mind like a steel trap and her heart set on becoming a lawyer, much to the disgust of Mr. Sheridan, himself an attorney, who favors Willie [her brother] for such a profession. But Willie yearns to dance . . . The clashes begin and grow in intensity until an Armageddon of sorts [occurs] between Willie, Emma, and their father.”—Booklist

“This book encompasses black rights, women’s rights, children’s rights, interfamily relations as well as obesity. It sounds like heavy going, but Louise Fitzhugh has put it all into a plot that starts off in high gear and never lets up until you reach the end. Her characters absorb you. It’s a masterful job.”—The Boston Globe

“The dialogue is flawless, the antics are riotous, it’s funny, it’s sad, it makes you mad, it makes you laugh, it makes you think.”—West Coast Review of Books
