      Wasn't crazy about the mom or her youngest daughter, but I do love the way this book shows how no one has a life without 'sticky' spots. These girls have it tough but they have lots of people looking out for them in what limited way they can.

      by Lesley Kagen Sally O'Malley made a promise to her daddy before he died. She swore she'd look after her sister, Troo. Keep her safe. But like her Granny always said-actions speak louder than words. Now, during the summer of 1959, the girls' mother is hospitalized, their stepfather has abandoned them for a six pack, and their big sister, Nell, is too busy making out with her boyfriend to notice that Sally and Troo are on the Loose. And so is a murderer and molester.
