Description
Pearl dresses as a boy to survive on the streets, where she seeks and finds her long-lost mother. Starr brings more than is usual to the job of baby-sitting. Two boys, Mick and Greg, risk stealing animals form pet stores in order to save the souls of those who would cage them. Noel writes an hilarious farewell letter (because her family's moving away) to the people who've sustained them all during her childhood--the gang at Big Hair and Nail Design Trough. Sweetness saves a baby from abandonment, but cannot save herself; Kevin saves his young brother from falling off a bridge... In all these brief but trenchant tales, young people hold out a hand to family or one another to find answers, to give hope, to say thanks. Or simply to share the wild oddity of life.
