This is a great book. It takes place in Deep Water, West Virginia. (Yes, Deep Water is the name of a real town!) I remember reading it in school. It really is a great story.

When she died and all her brothers and sisters passed me from house to house, nobody ever wanting to take care of me for long, I still had that lesson in love deep inside me and I didn't grow mean or hateful when nobody cared enough to make me their own little girl. Then Uncle Ob and Aunt May from West Virginia visited, and they knew an angel when they saw her and they took me on home.
