This book talks about what it was like growing up during the Great Depression. It talks about both things that a girl in Kit's situation would have experienced, like running a boarding house, to things happening all over the country- the lives of tramps and dust bowl farmers. The book also focuses on the many important programs President Roosevelt put in place to help Americans get through.
