Council on Interracial Books for Children award winner
From the award-winning author of The Hundred Penny Box comes a sweet story about how one girl can make a difference.
Lilly Etta didn’t know the men, but she knew those yellow chairs. They were Tanya’s, and they were being taken out of her building. Tanya was being put out – Tanya, her mother, her six brothers and sisters. Their things would be piled on the sidewalk and left there to be had for the taking. It didn’t matter if nobody else in the city cared; Lilly Etta did. She knew what friendship was, and she wasn’t going to let her friend be thrown out without a fight.
“An affecting, sensitive story.”—Booklist
