A Blessing in Disguiseby Eleamora E. Tate, Eleanora E. Tate
Life in itsy bitsy countrified do-nothing Deacon's Neck is plain boring to 12-year-old Zambia Brown. Living with Aunt Limo, Uncle Lamar, and nerdy cousin Aretha is all church, chores, and chump change. But when Zambia's father, Vernon (Snake) LaRange, opens a hot new nightclub down the road, things get more interesting. The neighborhood is up in arms, but Zambia has visions of living large now that Snake is nearby. He's got fine cars, flashy jewelry, and loads of cash. And no matter what her aunt and uncle say, Snake must want Zambia in his life, too...right?

I read this book when I was in the fifth grade and I fell in love with it. The main character, Zambia reminds me of myself in many ways. I recommend this book to all girls who like to read about about real life issues.
