"Jewel" by Jan Sikes

Jewel by [Sikes, Jan]

DESCRIPTION AS ON AMAZON:

For almost eighteen years, Jewel has known little beyond hopelessness and hunger. Barely existing in a ramshackle cabin, on the edge of a Louisiana swamp with her little sister and their mother, she sees no way to stop the downward spiral. When her mother falls gravely ill, Jewel learns that her life is about to take a drastic turn. But will it lead to joy or more devastation?

Take a heart-warming journey with Jewel as she struggles to rise from the clutches of poverty and shame.


This story parallels one of my favorite tunes — an entertaining variation. Born poor white trash, Jewel is scared, and her momma's sick. They don't have money for food or rent, but Jewel and her sister are handed over to others who will change their lives: Jewel's in a far different way than her sister's. Confused, Jewel must trust her mother to do what's right to save them. How sad to leave what you know, even if lacking comfort and necessities, for an uncertain future. A great short read with a consistent tempo, I finished it in one sitting and enjoyed it thoroughly. Recommended.
