Actually the edition I read has a very different and uite charming cover a watercolor of a winsome young girl back cover the rest of the scene of a family picnic 's a hard book to read Because it's a d shame tweens are known to be concerned about these issues Granted Greenfield did write it as she notes in the back to help her young sisters and brothers find strength and as we all know the awful truth is that even today African Americans do generally know about the challenges of a hard life at a younger age I do believe that if I were a young child of color I would find encouragement and hope in these pages And as a white older woman I am very glad that I read it Greenfield is a poet and it shows even in her prose books I will continue to read by her as I can find it

The story of Doretha a 13 year old girl who lives with her mom and older sister after her father has passed away Doretha's older sister Alberta has been staying out late not coming home and getting into trouble spending time with friends that are trouble Doretha loves her mother and her sister and she is struggling as she grows up and is witnessing some of the harsher realities of life One day when her sister leaves the house and Doretha and her mother are worrying about her Doretha feels concerned that she is going to become like Alberta As she sits on her bed waiting and worrying for her sister and what will become of her she picks up her diarybook of memories that she has written in a notebook that her father gave to her before he died The power of the book comes out as Doretha relives memories and experiences that have shaped her as a personI really liked this book It was really hard to get started reading because I didn't feel much connection to Doretha As I traveled along through the story and Doretha's history I was moved by the sadness and by the happy experiences that she had experienced at a level I didn't think would be possible in such a little book It was a wonderful story and I thoroughly enjoyed the time I spent in Doretha's worldI don't have much of a content warning There was nothing course or unsavory in Sister
