Turtle in Paradise

Out of stock
It's 1935, and work and money are scarce. So when Turtle's mama gets a job as a housekeeper for a lady who doesn't like kids, eleven-year-old Turtle is sent off to Key West, Florida, to live with relatives she's never met. "As if I don't have enough with three kids and a husband who's never home," says her aunt, who didn't know Turtle was coming but grudgingly allows her to stay. Author's note. Resources. Web sites.
