Raymond walks by the prison sign with Dad every Sunday. He doesn't like going to the prison, but he does like it once he's inside because he gets to see Mama. This Sunday is extra special. It's Raymond's seventh birthday, and even though Mama is in prison, she can be part of the celebration. Raymond knows that Mama won't be home until his ninth birthday, so he has only one wish this year -- to have nine candles on his birthday cake. Written by the award-winning author of Dancing Pink Flamingos and Other Stories ( C. 1995), this new addition to the acclaimed First Person series treats a difficult subject with sensitivity and care.
