A Blessing in Disguise

Hardcover (Delacorte Books for Young Readers Jan. 1, 1995) , First Edition edition
Life in "itsy-bitsy, countrified, do-nothing" Deacons Neck, South Carolina, is nothing but dull to twelve-year-old Zambia Brown. No action, hard work, and living with her dirt-poor aunt Limo and uncle Lamar make Zambia feel plain tired and disgusted.

But things start looking up when Zambia's father, Vernon "Snake" LaRange, opens a boss new nightclub in town. Though the rest of the community is up in arms, Zambia has visions of living large. Maybe Snake will notice her more -- maybe she can move in with him and her half sisters. So what if her aunt and uncle brought her up when her father didn't? He's family too...right?

In this gripping new novel, Eleanora E. Tate explores the decline of a town and the true meaning of family.
