Description
In this heartbreaking and redemptive novel from the author of The Glass Castle and Half Broke Horses, an intrepid girl challenges the injustice of the adult world. In a small town in 1970 California, "Bean" Holladay is 12 and her sister Liz is 15 when their spirited and artistic mother Charlotte takes off, leaving her girls enough money to last a month or two. When Bean returns from school one day and sees a police car outside the house, she and Liz decide to take a bus to Virginia, where their Uncle Tinsley lives in the decaying mansion that has been in Charlotte's family for generations, and the girls earn money by babysitting and doing office work for bullying mill foreman Jerry Maddox. Bean adores her whip-smart older sister—inventor of word games, reader of Edgar Allan Poe, nonconformist. But when school starts in the fall, it is Bean who adjusts and makes friends, and Liz who becomes increasingly withdrawn. And then something happens to Liz. Jeannette Walls, supremely alert to abuse of adult power, has written a moving novel about triumph over adversity and about people who find a way to love each other and the world, despite its flaws and injustices.
