Twelve-year-old Deza belongs to a loving family experiencing hard times during the Great Depression. When her father leaves home, presumably to find work, Deza and her family set out to find him. Though what Deza discovers about her father is different from what she had imagined, she is able to embrace the future with hope. In this thought-provoking, yet humorous juvenile novel, the author accomplishes one of his stated goals, that Deza “serve as a voice” for the millions of American children trapped in poverty today.
