Über diesen Titel


Glennis moves into Aunt Wanda's home after her entire family is separated due to the imprisonment of her father for committing a white-collar crime, but Glennis has faith and visits her father often, showing him support and believing in him when others will not.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 5-8?Glennis and her four siblings are farmed out to relatives and friends when their father is sent to prison for a white-collar crime and their mother has a nervous breakdown. Glennis chooses to stay with Aunt Wanda and cousin Skipper despite the comedown in economic status because here she can visit Dad on Saturdays, help him prove his innocence, and get set for a new trial. Similar to Marcia Byalick's It's a Matter of Trust (Harcourt, 1995), Calvert focuses on Glennis's coming to terms with the guilt of a beloved parent. Unfortunately, the mental adjustment mostly takes place outside the story and readers have little preparation for the girl's acceptance of herself and her father. The story has some nice writing and wonderful images ("my Humpty Dumpty family"), and Glennis is a strong female character with guts and ideas. However, Byalick does a better job of showing the interaction within a family torn from idyllic perfection, and Barthe DeClements's Breaking Out (Dell, 1993), Monkey See, Monkey Do (1990; o.p.), and Five-Finger Discount (1989; o.p., both Delacorte) show the humiliation and embarrassment among peers, which never really comes up here. Most far-fetched is Glennis's move from being the ignored middle child to a leader of her far-flung family, and her new family. However, those are nitpicky points in an engaging novel about a child caught in a tough situation.?Carol A. Edwards, Minneapolis Public Library
