Description

Book Sense Pick author Michelle D. Kwasney delivers this compelling coming-of-age story about a sixth-grade girl who struggles with the swirling effects of change on her family and friendships. It's 1968, and "Itch" Colchester loves everything about her home in rural Florida. But she especially loves Gramps-with his quiet wisdom and loving understanding. That's why it hurts so much when Gram finds him dead one morning. It also hurts to leave the piney woods of Beaver Creek for a double-wide trailer in Cousin Effie's small town Ohio. "Kwasney's characters are.fully fleshed and memorable."-Kirkus Reviews

Professional reviews

"Angela Rogers narrates this moving coming-of-age story, set in 1968. Rogers allows listeners to experience the emotional upheaval felt by sixth-grader Delores "Itch" Colchester after the death of her beloved grandfather. Forced to relocate from their home in Beaver Creek, Florida, to a small town in Ohio, Itch and her grandmother try to get on with their lives. When Itch discovers that her new friend, Wendy, has a dark secret, she gains the courage to speak up by remembering her late grandfather's sage advice. Rogers characterizes Itch with a soft-spoken Southern drawl that sets her apart from her new Ohio friends. Her rendition flawlessly captures the lyrical language of this beautifully written story.
