Inhaltsangabe: While Anna and her father sing in the streets of Rome, earning small change and moving around at her father's whim, Anna dreams of the American family she has never known.
From School Library Journal:
Grade 5-8-Ever since the tragic death of her mother many years ago, Anna Hopkins, 11, and her wistful father, Stephen, have been wandering about Europe, finding work and lodging as they go. Now it is 1969, and by day Anna is a grade-school student on the outskirts of Rome. By night, however, she and her father are street singers, dressed in threadbare clothing and begging among the restaurant tables of the city, then returning to the cheap, run-down pensione they call home. Anna is ashamed of their transient life and longs for a real home and family, like that of her school friend Fiorella. She confides in the pensione's gentle cook, Maria, that she is greatly drawn by an image of America gleaned from her father's rare stories of his bygone youth. But complex Stephen, much as he loves his sensitive daughter, is unable to face the ghosts of his past or look for a steady job. Just as he is planning yet another move-this time to Greece-a chance encounter with an old friend from Missouri turns their fragile world upside down. Goodman creates a palpable sense of place, weaving Italian sights, foods, customs, and language seamlessly into a story that has enough tension to keep readers involved. It will appeal to fans of another tale of life on the run, Amy Ehrlich's Where It Stops, Nobody Knows (Dial, 1988).
