Tiny Lambert is excited! It is 1956, and today is her first day at Black Gap High School in Virginia. Maybe she will finally make some friends. And a high school with band practice and football games may be just the thing she needs to keep her away from her house-and her stepfather Vern. Tiny feels uncomfortable whenever Vern drinks. He looks at her in a strange, new way. No one else seems to understand why she complains or tries to avoid him-not even Mom. What will Tiny do if she can’t tell anyone? Noted author Ruth White won a Newbery Honor for her book, Bell Prater’s Boy. In Weeping Willow, she approaches a sensitive issue with warmth and insight. Her moving tale wins the hearts of listeners everywhere with its gentle wisdom and entertaining, true-to-life characters.
