From the Publisher
Annotation Thumbelina, pregnant and grieving, is sent to a foster home when her mother dies. When she encounters another pregnant orphaned girl, Myrna, the two of them become runaways, taking to the road armed only with a little money and a sense of adventure. Before long, however, their condition catches up with them, and it becomes crucial to make some kind of plan for the future, and for the babies they carry. Koenig takes a difficult situation in the life of a young woman and turns it into a the basis for a humorous and affecting coming-of-age novel.
Editors Note Placed into a foster home after her mother dies, Thumbelina meets Myrna, another pregnant fourteen-year-old, and the two run away, determined to make it on their own despite the dangers.
