Read full description of the books:
An intense, fast read. Found it in a 3rd grade library I have recently inherited and decided I should read it before recommending it. Good thing because this is definitely NOT a 3rd grade book! The themes and content are not for the little ones. Nellie lives with her little brother, Willie, her abusive mother, and alcoholic, gambling father. Ma and pa conspire to sell her now that she is 13 and old enough to be married. Nellie and Willie have a couple of adventures and get rescued in spite of themselves. Shocking to find out at the end that this is essentially a true story! Authentic, fast-paced, and imminently readable.

Read information about the authorThe youngest child in a family who came from "a long line of farmers and readers," Clara Gillow Clark began school in a one-room schoolhouse and-when she wasn't wanting to be an inventor, archaeologist, geologist, missionary, or solo violinist-grew increasingly drawn to writing. After marrying and having a son, she read a magazine article on children's author Judy Blume, who, like her, was a stay-at-home wife who sold her own crafts before starting her writing career. Inspired, Clara Gillow Clark began commuting to writing classes in New York City, while juggling jobs ranging from teacher's aide to store manager.
Her long efforts paid off. "Now I work at home,"she says, happily. When she's not writing--or reading, or teaching writing, or talking shop with other writers--she enjoys baking, gardening, and walking the dirt roads bordering her little red house, surrounded by her own meadows, woods, and lake. "Walking," she says, "is a love I learned from my father, who took his sprawling brood on nature walks and taught us to stop long enough to really see things."
Clara Gillow Clark lives in Pennsylvania.
