Review: Katharen (Keet) moves from her Alabama home so she can be near to Grandfather. The move is difficult and kids make fun of her because she talks differently, so she stops talking so much. She spends hours with Grandpa fishing, but following a stroke he suddenly seems so far away. Keet is determined to help Grandpa by telling stories--and he doesn't mind her accent. Beautifully written, this gentle tale incorporates various poetic styles, which receive more explanation in the glossary.
