reviewed Blue Willow on
Janey Larkin can't remember when she's lived in the same place for more than a year. Her family has to keep moving so that her father can find work. But Janey longs for a real home and the chance to make friends.

When Mom gets sick and the Larkins don't have rent money, Janey offers to pay the rent with her beloved treasure---the beautiful blue willow plate that once belonged to her great-great-grandmother. Losing the plate seems like the end of the world to Janey, but it's really the beginning of something wonderful.

This was nice, but I've read others like it that were better. It's a young adult book, but it sort of connected to "The Grapes of Wrath", it's that era and circumstances. It's clean and nice for young people

Main character is a 10 year old girl, so I suppose it's geared towards that age group.

Book is in good condition with a few minor scuffs from wear. A Newberry Honor Award book published by Scholastic tells the story of Janey and her sacrifice of the blue willow plate that once belonged to her great-great grandmother in order to help the family pay the rent.
