For the Collins girls, the summer of 1955 starts off as normal as can be. Kentucky is the most popular girl in town. Virginia is the prettiest and Georgia the smartest; but the youngest, Carolina, has yet to find her own special place. Their financial troubles are softened by the arrival of their favorite cousin, Tadpole, a charismatic thirteen-year-old with a knack for guitar playing.

(AR) For ages 8 through 12.
