Louisiana is a wonder!

Wonderful first-person narrative told by a precocious 12-year-old girl whose conniving and unscrupulous grandmother yanks her out bed in the dead of night to flee across the Florida state border. Their madcap flight and what happens to them in Georgia is the story that Louisiana gives us in her singular voice. A heartwarming tale of love, trust and family, and of a girl who keeps her chin up in spite of all her trials.

Story of a resilient girl

Must read prequel, Raymie Nightingale, to understand the background of the characters in the Louisiana book. Story of immature, unreliable and selfish adults who complicate the lives of Raymie, Louisiana, and others. The girls learn to fend for themselves and find adults they can trust.
