 About the Book 

Learning to share loveThings at Jennalees house are just plain crazy, which is why she loves her predictable days helping Uncle Beau (who isnt really her uncle) at his general store. But then Rupert Goody shows up, claiming to be Uncle Beaus son.MoreLearning to share loveThings at Jennalees house are just plain crazy, which is why she loves her predictable days helping Uncle Beau (who isnt really her uncle) at his general store. But then Rupert Goody shows up, claiming to be Uncle Beaus son. Jennalee cant believe it, because Rupert is black and Uncle Beau is white. But Uncle Beau tells her it is true and incorporates Rupert into his life, ruining Jennalees routine.Although Rupert is slow, he is kind-hearted and tries hard to please. When more unforeseen events -- this time frightening ones -- further interrupt life at the store, Jennalee comes to see that Rupert Goody, odd though he may be, is certainly not the worst unexpected thing that could come along, and that he belongs with Uncle Beau as much as she does. With a vividly depicted setting, emotional truth, and a distinctly Southern voice, Barbara OConnor shows that there is love enough to go around.
