Description - My Louisiana Sky by Kimberly Willis Holt

After Granny dies, Tiger Ann Parker wants nothing more than to get out of the rural town of Saitter, Louisiana - far away from her mentally disabled mother, her "slow" father who can't read a phone bill, and the classmates who taunt her. So when Aunt Dorie Kay asks Tiger to live with her in Baton Rouge, Tiger can't wait to go. But before she is able to leave, the sudden revelation of a dark family secret prompts Tiger to make a decision that will ultimately change her life.

Set in the South in the late 1950's, this tender coming-of-age novel explores a twelve-year old girl's struggle to accept her grandmother's death, her mentally deficient parents, and the changing world around her. It is a story filled with beautiful language, unforgettable characters, and the importance of family and home.
