How to Steal a Dog
Audience: 4th Grade - 6th Grade
Georgina and her mother and brother are living in their old car after being evicted from an apartment. They were left almost penniless when their dad/husband left. Georgina's mama is busy with two jobs while the kids are in school. Georgina wants to help mama and especially wants to quit living in the car; so she concocts a plan to do so. She plots all the steps to accomplish the plan but may have forgotten a step or two. This young girl is presented in a passionate way by the author. Will she develop a more keen sense of what's right when everything else seems wrong?
