 Principal Harvey's Book of the Month

Just Juice 

                                                    by Karen Hesse 

   Justice Faulstich lives with her pa and ma and four sisters in the North Carolina hills.   Working with her hands comes easy to Juice, but not school.  This year, she's back   again in Miss Hamble's third grade.  Letters and numbers still don't make sense to   her, even though she's the biggest kid in class.  Juice skips school when she can,  and   spends the day with her pa.  When he gets an official looking letter, he asks Juice's   little  sister to read it--he says he needs new glasses and can't make out the words.   It seems the bank will repossess their house if they don't pay their taxes--but how   will they ever pay back so much money? And who is   brave enough to tell Ma?  Juice realizes that if she is to be helpful, she must return   to school and learn to read. 

 Karen Hesse, the Newberry Award winning author, works her magic again in this   satisfying family story about life-sized problems and everyday heroes.
