Tiny Lambert is excited! It is 1956, and today is her first day at Black Gap High School in Virginia. Maybe she will finally make some friends. And a high school with band practice and football games may be just the thing she needs to keep her away from her house-and her stepfather Vern. Tiny feels uncomfortable whenever Vern drinks. He looks at her in a strange, new way. No one else seems to understand why she complains or tries to avoid him-not even Mom. What will Tiny do if she can't tell anyone? Noted author Ruth White won a Newbery Honor for her book, Bell Prater's Boy. In Weeping Willow, she approaches a sensitive issue with warmth and insight. Her moving tale wins the hearts of listeners everywhere with its gentle wisdom and entertaining, true-to-life characters.

"Although high schooler Tiny Lambert is the victim of her sexually abusive stepfather, she is so much more in this compassionate story. Angela Jayne Rogers matches Tiny's hill-country accent, delivering a first-person reading that enlivens Tiny's victories, triumphs and first loves while maintaining the underlying edge of fear lurking just below the surface of her days. Because Tiny's gift is her singing voice, Rogers sings several songs during the course of the reading. Her voice is sweet and pleasant; however, it is not the crystalline voice the listener expects from the highly gifted Tiny. This flaw, however, does not significantly detract from the powerful effect of Rogers's Southern cadences and her otherwise authentic rendering of Tiny Lambert. T.B. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine"
