THE STORY IS all true and happened to me and is mine. Tony's mom, Al, is a terrific single mother who works as a dancer at the Kitty Kat Club. Twelve-year-old Tony is a budding artist, inspired by backstage life at the club.

Is Al a responsible mother? It's the case of the stripper vs. the state, and Al isn't giving Tony up without a fight. Once again Gary Paulsen proves why he's one of America's most-beloved writers.The Glass Caféis a fresh and funny exploration of motherhood, art, and the wiles of storytelling--all told by Tony, in his own true voice.
