About The Book:
Set during the summer of 1937, The Growing Rock is a piece of historical fiction for early teen readers. It tells the story of fourteen-year-old Caroline Neal and the complicated dynamics within her family. When Papa says he must leave the Ripley cotton farm to find work, Caroline can’t help but worry. After all, her favorite brother George told her something very similar not long ago. And no one has heard from him since.
Caroline refuses to believe that George possibly died in the Ohio River floods the way the rest of the family says. She knows that if she does, she won’t have the strength to do her share of the work while looking after her sickly little sister Phoebe and telling her hopeful stories about the Growing Rock that George always said grew magically larger every summer. But as time moves on, Caroline feels more and more discouraged. Except for the town’s strange recluse, she often has no one to talk to. It doesn’t help that she feels different now around her best friend Peter, and, on top of everything, her older sister Blanche constantly runs off. When tragedy occurs that threatens to break the large family apart even more, Caroline fights not to give into the hopelessness that is consuming Mama.
