Praise
"Readers will relish this trip down South, and they couldn't ask for a better guide than O'Connor, who captures a young boy's heart and hold it out as a gift."
"O'Connor's first venture into fiction sparkles with richly drawn characters--emotionally guarded and tart-tongued, but deeply humane."
From the Publisher
Annotation Martin must defy his father's statement that "music is for sissies" in order to pursue his dream of becoming a classical musician.
Editors Note Martin longs to be a musician, and with the encouragement of two very different friends, he eventually is able to defy his mean-hearted father and accept himself and the talent within him.
Editors Note 2 Set in a trailer park called Paradise"You're just wasting your God-given talents if you don't get yourself something besides a little ole harmonica to play." Wylene made it sound so easy. Martin had always like music -- liked to listen to it, liked to make up tunes in his head. But all he had to do was say the word "piano" to his father and all hell would break loose. His father thought music was for sissies, and was always mad at Martin for not being good at baseball. But with a lot of help from his friends Wylene and Sybil and his grandmother, Hazeline, Martin learns that, although he can't change his father, he can learn to stick up for himself. With humor, pathos, and a colorful cast of offbeat characters, Barbara O'Connor shows that there's room for genius wherever there's a place for compassion-- even in Paradise.
