When her beloved father leaves to find work, Deza, Mother, and her older brother Jimmie go in search of him, and end up in a Hooverville outside Flint, Michigan.

It is said that if we don't learn from history, we're bound to repeat it. There are events that take place ithis book that feel like they could have been written about current events.
There are "tent cities" being erected formally and informally. There are people who are treated as if being poor or being black are crimes.
But I'm making it sound like the book is depressing and it is far from it! This is a story of hope, of family, and of love.
I highly recommend everyone reading or listening to this wonderful book.
