Product Overview

When sixteen-year-old Gloria fails thirteen out of fifteen subjects on her final exams, her future looks bleak indeed. Her familys resources are meager so the entire family is thrilled when a distant relative, Christine, offers to move Gloria north to Kumasi to look after her toddler son, Sam. In exchange, after two years, Christine will pay for Gloria to go to dressmaking school. Life in Kumasi is more grand than anything Gloria has ever experienced. She joins a youth band at church, and Christine has even promised to teach her to read. But Kumasi is also full of temptations -- the owner of a popular clothing shop encourages her to buy clothes on credit, and the smooth-talking Dr. Kusi off ers Gloria rides in his red sports car. Eventually Gloria is betrayed by the people around her and is disillusioned by her new life. But in the end she decides who she can trust, and draws on her own considerable inner resources to put the bad experiences behind her. *Author: Badoe, Adwoa *Publication Date: 2012/02/21 *Number of Pages: 205 *Binding Type: Paperback *Grade Level: 10-12 *Language: English *Depth: 0.50 *Width: 5.00 *Height: 7.00
