Gr. 3-5 New to Wakeview, South Carolina, in the late 1970s, Sylvia, 11, is sad when Momma (really her aunt) leaves for a while to find her family roots. Sylvia stays with her great-grandma Miz Lula Maye, 100 years old, who helps Sylvia with the stress of starting at a new school. When kids tease Sylvia about her friendship with the "old witch," Sylvia is ashamed (and angry at herself for being ashamed), but Miz Lula laughs at the kids and lets Sylvia know that she is always safe and loved at home.
