And even worse, Ernestine begins talking and laughing with Amanda's best friend. The two ten-year-olds have never gotten along, and Amanda intends to keep it that way. But music lessons and the really annoying fact that Ernestine's brother is dating Amanda's sister keep throwing the two together. Somehow they discover they aren't really enemies. In fact, they are beginning to need each other. Popular author Sandra Belton offers an entertaining and vital glimpse into the day-to-day life of young African-American girls growing up in the segregated South of the 1950s.
