It's been one crazy summer with the mother they hardly even know. Three kids venture to California and met their mom who just happens to be involved in the often violent Black Panthers Movement of the 1960s. How's that for a summer vacation to remember.
Eleven year old Delphine, and her two younger sisters Vonetta, and Fern were sent from Brooklyn to California to see someone who left them seven years ago; their mother. When the girls arrive in Oakland, California, they realize the women the mother they were so anxious to see wants nothing to do with them for the summer, and sends them off to a day camp sponsored by the Black Panthers. The girls want nothing more than to be loved by someone who walked out on them. Though this book takes place in one of the most horrible times in history this story will gives you some laughs, and cries.
