Really Truly Ruthie

Ruthie Smithens, a girl who loves fairy tales and happy endings, doesn’t mind being "goofy Ruthie" if it makes her best friend, Kit Kittredge, smile and forget about the hardships of the Depression. But when Ruthie finds out that the Kittredges are going to be evicted from their house, she makes up her mind to help. Ruthie knows that to bring about a happy ending, she’ll have to be as smart and brave and determined as she can really, truly be.
