After spending one crazy summer with her long lost mother in Oakland, Delphine and her sisters are back in Brooklyn. The year is 1968 and, along with the rest of the country, Vonetta, Fern, and Delphine have fallen in love with the Jackson 5. This is great slice of life historical fiction that explores what it means to be eleven years old.
