Über diesen Titel


Two sisters run away from their abusive stepfather and settle in an abandoned house in West Texas, only to find that they are not alone but share the premises with the mysterious and helpful Hobkin.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 6-8-- In an unusual mix of fantasy and realism, a hobkin facilitates the survival of two runaways. Sexually abused Kay, fearful that her stepfather will turn on younger sister Liza next, flees with her to an abandoned west Texan farmhouse that once belonged to the Stark family. After convincing local people that they might be kin to the Starks, Kay gets work at the general store and inexperienced Liza tackles the housekeeping, without electricity or running water. Hobkin, a brownie who had followed his English mistress to the farm after World War I, shows Liza the ropes and saves her from serious injury several times. Good neighbors, milking goats, hard work, and friends give Liza new self-confidence and a sense of belonging in the tiny community. Kay's problems run deeper but by the end of the summer when both their mother (also abused) and a Ms. Stark arrive, she's almost ready to trust again. Hobkin's unexpected presence in the lonely, taste-the-dust setting works, although the question of whether or not it takes a Hobkin to ensure female survival there gives pause. Uneven pacing and an ending too full of solutions and explanations (as well as Hobkin's abrupt departure) are balanced by realistic dialogue, genuine tension, and appealing characters. --Sara Miller, Nassau Library System, NY
