Read an Excerpt

One of the cats rubbed against Pearl's legs and she pushed it away. "Maybe I could work at the diner," she said.

"Work at the diner?" Ivy sat back down across from Pearl.

"So I could earn some money. Then I can pay you."

"Pay me for what?"

"For living here. You know, for my food and all. And for sneakers. Stuff like that."

Ivy reached across the table and took both of Pearl's hands in hers. "Sugar, you can't live with me forever."

Well, stab my heart, Pearl thought when she heard those words. Just stab my heart right through. She jerked her hands away and looked at Ivy to make sure she wasn't joking. The serious look on Ivy's face told Pearl she wasn't. "Then where am I going to live?" she said. Her voice came out all trembly.

"With Ruby, honey. She's your mama. We've got to find her and make her come back."
