    Gypsy Summer

    A Novel

    A realistic portrayal of a young woman and her family that will appeal to the altruism inherent in tweens. All Katie Barnes wants is to be a normal thirteen-year-old with a normal home again. She and her family had moved from Kansas to Washington state hoping to find a better life. Instead, they are completely homeless and four states away from family and friends. Katie chafes under the stress of being forced to accept charity, struggles to fit in with the other kids, and ultimately blames God, who has apparently abandoned her to this miserable life.

    • With the current economic situation, there are a lot of families in the Barnes's shoes
    • Confronts individual character issues with God and invites kids to reach out to those less fortunate without putting them down
    • Remarkably in-touch with the world of early teens
    Betty Barclift has been published in a variety of publications nation-wide. But her greatest honor is being called grandmother and having been married to a godly man who was a minister and teacher.
