Letter to Mrs. Roosevelt by C. Coco De Young

Eleven-year-old Margo Bandini has never been afraid of anything. Her life in Johnstown, Pennsylvania, with Mama and Papa and her little brother, Charlie, has always felt secure. But it's 1933, and the Great Depression is changing things for families all across America.

One day the impossible happens: Papa cannot make the payments for their house, and the Sheriff Sale sign goes up on their door. They have two weeks to pay the bank, or leave their home forever. Now Margo is afraid--but she's also determined to find a way to help Papa save their home.

'A Letter to Mrs. Roosevelt' was a good Mother- Daughter Book Group choice. Much discussion developed from this touching story of a scary, sad time and how two young girls and their families dealt with. 'A Letter to Mrs. Roosevelt' helps you delve into history,and reminds you how much we have today. We also discussed themes in this book like hope,coming together, and giving what little you have to others in need when times are so rough. Great lessons in life.
