One Crazy Summer by Rita Williams-Garcia

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐✰✰

Three young sisters Delphine, Vonetta and Fern go to California to spend a month getting acquainted with the mother that abandoned them just after Fern was born. Their mother, Camille, is a poet and a member of the Black Panthers and the girls have one crazy summer indeed while largely fending for themselves. 

I listened to this book on audio with my 9 and 12 year old and, while I expected a little bit more from it, we enjoyed this little slice of life from another time.
