Grades 4 & up

Weezie takes the blame for everything. Every since Gramma Emmeline died, Momma has criticized everything that Weezie does. No matter how hard she tries, nothing is good enough for Momma. What makes it even harder is not knowing who her daddy is. Her sister’s daddy was Tommy, who died in the war, and her baby brother’s daddy is Roy, who still comes around to see him. But Momma won’t tell her anything about her daddy. With the help of a teacher who sees her potential and a new friend who doesn’t judge her by where she lives, Weezie starts to think that maybe she isn’t so bad after all. A bittersweet story about searching for the truth. Recommended for grades 4-7.
