The Not-So-Great Depression
Amy Goldman Koss
Jacki’s ninth–grade teacher is always going on about the unemployment index and the recession, but it doesnt sink in until her mom is laid off and everything seems to cost more than they can afford. Luckily, Jacki has her bestfriend Emily to confide in and the adorable Adam B. to distract her, so she isn't about to let her family's money problems bring her down for long. After all, just because they can't buy a fabulous life doesn't mean they can't still have a happy ending, right?
