Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 4-6-Sixth-grader Evangeline Dawn Brown is embarrassed about the "butt end" of an old pink Cadillac that protrudes from a wall of her father's run-down motel as a gimmick to attract customers in Paradise, FL. Even more embarrassing is the fact that since her mother died, her father has become an alcoholic. Fortunately, a new friend, Farrell, likes basketball as much as she does, lives nearby, and shares many of her feelings since his mother is dead, too, and his father drinks with Eddie's father. The protagonist is a good student who is happy with her new teacher until the woman announces that she will visit each child's home. Eddie does her best to make a good impression during the visit, but her father is obviously drunk. Both youngsters fear intervention by social workers who might send them to foster homes, and they plan to run away together. Likable characters are developed in a satisfying, linear plot that explores the challenges of living with dysfunctional adults. Though this novel is not as multilayered as Patricia Reilly Giff's Pictures of Hollis Woods (Random, 2002), readers will find parallel relationships and action.

Review

"...wonderfully willful heroine, reminiscent of Scout in To Kill a Mockingbird... a poignant story that touched my heart" -- Han Nolan, award winning author of Dancing on the Edge

"Likable characters are developed in a satisfying, linear plot that explores the challenges of living with dysfunctional adults." -- School Library Journal

"What [Evangeline's] afraid of... is that no one loves her. She's wrong. I do, for one." -- Children's Book Reviewer, Miami Herald/Knight Ridder - Tribune News Service
