Begging for Change

This sequel to Money Hungry (which I keep ordering and not getting in the shipment) has been a successful read for my students who want fiction about difficult times in the inner city. While Raspberry's mother is doing okay, and the family does have the support of friends, but after the mother is attacked, it becomes more difficult to stay in their neighborhood. Add to this a drug addicted father who shows up from time to time only to steal from Raspberry, and it's a less than optimal situation. Things do improve, however. All in all, a good, solid read about persevering in the face of difficulties.
