Item description for Gypsy Summer: A Novel by Betty Barclift...

Overview
A realistic portrayal of a young woman and her family that will appeal to the altruism inherent in pre-teens. All Katie Barnes wants is to be a normal thirteen-year-old with a normal home again. She and her family had moved from Kansas to Washington State hoping to find a better life. Instead, they are completely homeless and four states away from family and friends. Katie chafes under the stress of being forced to accept charity, struggles to fit in with the other kids, and ultimately blames God, who has apparently abandoned her to this miserable life.

Reviews - What do customers think about Gypsy Summer: A Novel?

Good book!  Jan 11, 2007
I just love books - any kind of books that I can get my hands on, I love 'em. This one is a good read, it's kind of sad in parts but I really enjoyed it a lot. Makes you think about real people out there who may be going through the same situations and you want to help them any way you can. I enjoyed this book.
 
exciting  Oct 9, 2005
it was a vary nice book, i enjoyed it vary much.I loved to see how the fact that it is hard for homeless people. they were a nice family that just happened to not have a home. i have a new perspective of homeless familys that they do try to get jobs but just cant. i loved that book !!!!!
 
A Compelling Story  Oct 1, 2003
Gypsy Summer is a great read--fast-paced and true-to-life. It will certainly open the eyes of young readers and give them a glimpse of what it's like to be homeless: the uncertainty of tomorrow, the despair, and the loneliness of being different. Best of all, it shows how God can take any situation and turn it around for His good. Highly recommended.
