It’s September 1932 and Booky is living in the heart of the Great Depression. She doesn’t know the reasons for it, but she knows that she’s hungry all the time, that her parents fight constantly and that soon she may be evicted from her home. But Booky has imagination and spirit, and she keeps her family together through the cold, hard times.

Booky is back and getting into more trouble than ever, from sneaking into a movie, telling ghost stories to scare the kids, getting fired from her first babysitting job and more.

Booky is growing up. She’s finished school and has even gotten her first job. Then she meets Lucy Maud Montgomery, author of Anne of Green Gables which inspires her to start her own writing career. No longer quite the scatterbrain she was in her younger years, Booky navigates through adolescence, falls in love and moves gracefully into adulthood.
