PENNY FROM HEAVEN by Jennifer L. Holm

It's 1953 and eleven-year-old Penny dreams of a summer of butter pecan ice cream, swimming, and baseball.  But nothing is that simple for Penny.  For starters, she cannot go swimming because her mother is afraid Penny will catch polio at the pool.  To make matters worse, her favorite uncle is living in a car.  Her Nonny cries every time Penny's father's name is mentioned.  And the two sides of her family are not speaking to each other!  When it rains, it sure does rain, but Penny is learning that like the song says...even the darkest clouds may just contain some pennies from heaven.
