Bridgers, Sue Ellen
New York : Knopf, 1977
IL 5-6 .
ISBN 1889199079  

Stella follows her family back to the father's childhood home. He has lost his claim to the farm, but his brother lets him settle in an abandoned share-cropper shack. Even this is so much better than Stella's former home -- the station wagon that carried them from place to place -- that she doesn't want to move on to a better place when the opportunity arises. There's the added dilemma of which boy is best for her -- her poor neighbor who does seem to be just like her --or the rich boy, who is showing her more expensive social activities but doesn't really have much in common with her.

SUBJECTS:     Family life -- Fiction
