Abstract:

It's 1953 and eleven-year-old Penny dreams of a summer of butter pecan ice cream, swimming, and baseball. But nothing's that easy for Penny. For starters, she can't go swimming because her mother's afraid she'll catch polio at the pool. To make matters worse, her favorite uncle is living in a car. Her Nonny cries every time her father's name is mentioned. And the two sides of her family aren't speaking to each other! When it rains it sure does rain, but Penny's learning that like the song says ... even the darkest clouds may just contain some pennies from heaven.-Dust jacket.
