A Cincinnati girl growing up during the Great Depression is determined to help her family. But will she be able to keep her spirits high when times get tough?
The bad economy has affected almost everyone in Kit Kittredge's life—her dad is without a job, and her family worries about losing their home. Just when Kit begins to feel hopeless, she discovers ways to make a difference. She moves to the attic so boarders can rent rooms in her house and starts growing vegetables to feed her family. Kit even begins sharing her love of writing, submitting articles to the local newspaper about the hungry and homeless.
Discover how Kit's resourceful mind and open heart drive her to make a difference—and whether it will be enough.

Kit's childhood is shaped by hard times—and gives girls examples of how to face difficulties of their own. From turning what's been “used up” into something useful to helping others who have even less than her, Kit displays resilience and compassion that every girl can learn from.
