Spring '13 Kids List
“When Hattie Big Sky lost her crop to a hailstorm and with it her chance to keep her Montana homestead, we knew the plucky pioneer would make her way somehow. Larson's clever heroine takes a seamstress job that transports her to post-WWI San Francisco, where hems are rising and a young woman's resourcefulness and wit can earn her a career in this new era. From prairie to newsroom, Hattie remains both true to herself and determined to succeed. A delightful and well-researched novel.”
