    "We are a family on a journey to a place called wonderful" is the motto of Deza Malone's family. Deza is the smartest girl in her class in Gary, Indiana, singled out by teachers for a special path in life. But the Great Depression hit Gary hard, and there are no jobs for black men.

    Story

    This was a very moving piece of historical fiction, set in the time of the Great Depression. It focuses on a bright young woman entering her teens, and the struggle of her loving family to hold itself together, despite poverty, racism, and health problems they could not afford to address.
    I'd recommend it for both young and old audiences.
