Summer Reading: Money Hungry by Sharon Flake

This is one in a series of posts highlighting books for our Summer Reading Celebration Day on September 23rd. Students can choose one of the books from our list for their enjoyment.

Today's post is about Sharon Flake's Money Hungry, which is about 13-year-old Rasberry Hill, who is starved for money. She will do just about anything legal to get her hands on the almighty dollar. Memories of being homeless, sleeping in the streets, and eating fro handouts keep Raspberry's eye on the only prize that matters to her: cold, hard cash. But even money can't answer the questions that keep Raspberry awake at night. Will she and Momma ever move out of the projects? What did Ja'nae do with the two hundred bucks RAspberry loaned her? And what's really going on with Momma and that rich doctor? This book is 192 pages and contains language and mature themes.
