Leave It to Beany (Beany Malone Series, #3)

by Lenora Mattingly Weber

Beany Malone liked to manage things. She thought she could even manage Sheila McBride when Sheila appeared at the big friendly house on Barberry Street. The Malones had invited their "much removed" Irish cousin, whom they had never seen, because she was an orphan and lonely in America. Beany pictured her as being wistful and starry-eyed like Peg o' My Heart, and thought she would be as eager to share their interests as they were to include her in their merry circle. Pretty Mary Fred would take Sheila under her wing at college, literary Johnny would discuss Irish poets and plays with her, and Beany, whose warm heart could play odd pranks on her practical mind, resolved that Sheila must always wear gay clothes, sparkle with wit, and never do household chores. It never occurred to them that Sheila might have her own ideas and plans, and the character (Beany called it stubbornness) to carry them out. But Beany plunged with headlong enthusiasm into a newspaper job while still in high school, pleased to have something to take her mind from her troubles with her best beau, and Sheila's stubbornness. One afternoon she brought home from the paper a stray baby, name and age unknown, as anyone else might bring in a stray kitten! The baby played havoc with the household routine, and caused so many surprising complications that sometimes Beany forgot to worry about having lost the charm bracelet that Norbett had given her. Meanwhile troubles multiplied, and Beany found that trying to manage everything and everybody was a big job.

Life for Me Ain't Been No Crystal Stair

by Susan Sheehan

On October 7, 1984, Crystal Taylor gave birth to a baby boy whom she named Daquan. Crystal was only fourteen. She was living with a boyfriend whom she was too young to marry, and her mother was addicted to heroin and cocaine. So under the law, Crystal and Daquan became wards of New York State's foster-care system--a sprawling, often slipshod web of boarding facilities, halfway houses, and paid surrogates that cares for almost 60,000 children. Life for Me Ain't Been No Crystal Stair is the story of what happened to Crystal and Daquan, as well as to Crystal's mother, who herself had grown up in various foster homes. It is a story of three generations of poverty, addiction, and abuse--and also a story of astonishing human resilience. And Susan Sheehan tells it with the same flawless observation, humor, and compassion that she brought to her classic Is There No Place on Earth for Me?From the Trade Paperback edition.

by Kelly Easton

In the era of Watergate, the Vietnam War, and David Bowie, fourteen-year-old Kristin navigates the external and internal changes that come at top speed. The Life History of A Star is Kristin's sometimes comical, sometimes cynical, always thoughtful diary about what her life has been like since the ghost arrived. It takes a lot of time and an unforgettable family therapy session for Kristin to begin to learn who the ghost was-and who she is. And where on Earth she fits in. Caught up in the politics of her time and in the life of a family who doesn't always understand her, Kristin makes a memorable journey through the byways of adolescence-all the way to the stars and back again.
