THE SAME STUFF AS STARS
New York : Clarion Books,
IL 5-8, RL 5.
and Bernie have never had it easy. Their dad's in jail and
mom is none too stable. They have been in and out of foster care
but Angel remains hopeful that things will get better. They've been
living with their mother in Burlington for about a year now and visiting
their dad every Saturday. Things could work out. But one Saturday,
their mother packs the kids up and drives to a rural part of the state.
There they meet their great grandmother. Before they know it, they've
been left once again. Their life is now one of loneliness and eating
canned peaches and beans. It's obvious that grandma doesn't want
them there. She spends most of her time wrapped in a blanket sitting
on the rocking chair. Angel finds herself in the role of the caregiver
for both Bernie and Grandma. If it wasn't for the mysterious starman
who Angel meets in the field, she would have nothing to look forward to.
