For young Kay, growing up in middle class America during World War II is a confusing and sometimes painful experience. Her stepmother, Amazing Grace, is a selfish woman who takes her unhappiness out on those around her. And for a little girl so concerned with pleasing others and doing the honorable thing, life with Amazing Grace is nearly unbearable. But Kay is also a believer. She's determined to "keep smiling through," as the song says, knowing that one day she will do something extraordinary. "A bittersweet historical novel."—Kirkus Reviews
