Twists and Turns
(Thorndike Press, July 9, 2004)
It may have taken them an extra year or two to do it, but the Washington sisters finally graduated high school. But, now what? Keeba and Teesha are still hanging out on neighborhood benches with no future plans. Then an older friend convinces the sisters that they too have a skill - braiding hair - and that they just might be able to make some money from it. Suddenly, everything changes and the future looks pretty solid . . . until greed, jealousy, and politics turn the sisters' world upside down. Available only in The Literacy Bridge 5.
