Pitching in for Eubie

Written by: Jerdine Nolen and EB Lewis

First line: A big cloud of dust came winding down our road, like a tornado on wheels.

Why you should read this book: A really lovely story about family coming together and kids finding their way. When Lily's big sister, Eubie, is accepted to college in a full scholarship that covers everything except for three thousand dollars room and board, the family is mobilized to raise that money before the term starts. Everyone is working hard and raking in extra cash to help, but none of Lily's money-making schemes come to fruition, until at last, the right job comes along.

Why you shouldn't read this book: You don't believe in hard work.
