"An alcoholic mother, a distracted father, a best friend who spends all his time with his new 'girlfriend,' and three relentless schoolyard bullies: Prinny Murphy's past, present, and future certainly are 'tense' Adding to her misery, she is in grade six and still can't read well enough to escape from remedial lessons with the dour Mrs. Dooks. But when a kindly substitute teacher introduces her to LaVaughn's inner-city world in the free verse novel, Make Lemonade, Prinny discovers that life can be full of possibilities-and poetry." --From the publisher.
