In today's world, many children live with this same type of stress (parent in jail) and more. As a former sixth grade teacher and current school counselor, I have used Queeny Peavy for many years. Queeny is a great role model for teachers and counselors to use to set the tone for goalsetting and growth in their student.
Robert Burch does a masterful job as he takes Queeny from a scrapping "rascal" to a focused youth in her search for her own self-worth.
Queenie Peavy is an incredibly real novel about a girl on the cusp of growing up who has to decide for herself what kind of woman she wants to be. Does she want to use her father's sins as an excuse to be lazy and destructive? Or does she want to live her own life, free from the shadow of crime and poverty?
