Is there greed in Raspberry Hill’s genes? In this sequel to Coretta Scott King Honor Book Money Hungry, once-homeless Raspberry Hill vows never to end up on the streets again. It’s been a year since Raspberry’s mother threw her hard-earned money out the window like trash, so to Raspberry money equals security and balance. And she’s determined to do anything to achieve it. But when a troubled neighborhood teenager attacks her mother and Raspberry’s drug-addicted father returns, Raspberry becomes desperate for her life to change and ends up doing the unthinkable, potentially ruining her friendships and losing her self-respect along the way. Will Raspberry accept that nothing good comes of bad money? Or is she destined to follow in her father’s footsteps?
