Curtis, Christopher Paul.

New York : Listening Library (Audio), 2012.

1 online resource (7 audio files) : digital.

In the Newbery Medal and Coretta Scott King Award€€“winning Bud, Not Buddy, Bud met a girl named Deza Malone in a Hooverville. This is her story. "We are a family on a journey to a place called wonderful" is the motto of Deza Malone's family. Deza is the smartest girl in her class in Gary, Indiana, singled out by teachers for a special path in life. But the Great Depression has hit Gary hard, and there are no jobs for black men. When her beloved father leaves to find work, Deza, Mother, and her older brother Jimmie go in search of him, and end up in a Hooverville outside Flint, Michigan. Jimmie's beautiful voice inspires him to leave the camp to be a performer, while Deza and Mother find a new home, and cling to the hope that they will find Father. The twists and turns of their story reveal the devastation of the Depression and prove that Deza truly is the Mighty Miss Malone. "Witty and moving . " €€” The Wall Street Journal "The fluidity of the writing, the strong sense of place and time combined with well-drawn characters will captivate and delight. . . . a fitting literary companion to Bud Caldwell." €€” Kirkus Reviews, Starred "Curtis threads important bits of African-American history throughout the narrative. . . . Some readers will feel they are due a bit of happiness; others will be struck by how little has changed in 75 years for the nation's have-nots." €€” Publishers Weekly, Starred From the Hardcover edition.
