A stunning debut from the heart of the American South

From a fresh new voice in fiction comes this remarkable portrait of the perils and pleasures of growing up. Sissy is just becoming a teenager in a house full of busy adults, a demanding little brother, a bossy cousin, and far too many chickens. Whether she's sneaking into church for her cousin Delores, venturing into the Gypsy camp with her best friend Polly, or exploring the local garden called Eden, Sissy is always up for new adventures. Set in the South in the late 1950's, Sandy Richardson's hilarious and true-to-life chronicles of the irrepressible Sissy and her extended family are the perfect antidote for those caught-in-the-middle years!
