This is a wonderful adult tale from the perspective of 10 year old Tomboy, Teaspoon, who has the gift of a beautiful singing voice and whose mother has abandoned her to pursue a career in Hollywood. This is a strong cast who provides a deep look at small Mill-town living in the "50's" in all the humor, triumph and charm while transforming Teaspoon into Isabella, her birth name, and all that that entails. I recommend!

Sandra Kring's characters are drawn so vividly and are so endearing that they pull you in and don't let go until you've read the very last page. When I finish a book by Sandra Kring I just want to read another and another. Also recommended is The Book of Bright Ideas.

In 1955 in Mill Town energetic rabble-rouser ten year old Teaspoon enjoys singing. The Tom Boy was deserted five years ago by her single mom Catty. Her mother's former boyfriend Teddy raises Teaspoon who decides she needs to change her out of control behavior so he will be proud of her. To achieve a life makeover, Teaspoon needs a female role model as all she knows is typical male behavior: fighting, lying, and more fighting. To achieve her objective, Teaspoon joins the Sunshine Sisters mentoring program in which an adult is paired with a child. Her Big Sister is highly respected Brenda Bloom, daughter of the most affluent family in town. Brenda and Isabella (ladies are not Teaspoon except in size) match up well and soon each is teaching the other and Teddy until Catty returns. This is a strong cast who provides a deep look at small-town living in the Eisenhower Era. The story line is driven by the relationships with Teaspoon as the center holding the tale together. Although the plot is straightforward with no surprising spins, historical fans will enjoy tomboyish Teaspoon's efforts to become respectable Isabella (her birth name). Harriet Klausner

If you want to write nonsense do it on your own format and find a publisher.

I ordered this book because it is set in Wisconsin where we lived most of our lives. How refreshing to read a story with such a unique perspective. Quite unlike most books I read. Loved it!

I read my first Sandra Kring book a few years ago and couldn't wait to start this one. I loved it. Her characters are so real and the story just draws you in. I can't wait to start her next book!

I was really excited when I won this book on Firstreads because it looked absolutely adorable. Living in a small town in 1955, 10-yr-old Teaspoon sometimes seems larger than life. She fights, fibs, talks too much, and has a passion for singing. But Teaspoon wants to change in order to be "respectable" for Teddy, the boyfriend that her mom abandoned her with 5 years ago. So Teaspoon joins the Sunshine Sisters, a mentoring program, and her Big Sister is none other than Brenda Bloom, the daughter to the richest and most respectable family in town. I greatly enjoyed this books cast. All the characters are well-drawn with big personalities, the biggest belonging to the narrator. Teaspoon is delightfully naive and very funny, even when she doesn't intend to be. However her voice did waver on the thin line bewteen charming and irritating, as all ten year olds sometimes do. The plot was good, if somewhat predictable. I did enjoy this book, and I wish I could give it 3.5 stars. I feel it would make a really good movie one day. I'll be smiling about Teaspoon's summer for a while, but if I never hear the words "affliction" or "respectable" agian, it will be too soon.
