Teenaged daughter Pauline longs for a college education she cannot possibly afford, while her younger sister Susan pursues popularity.

It will take a miracle for the Youngblood family’s dreams to come true.


The tardy bell was ringing when Mr. Krause strode into the room. A portly man of perhaps sixty, he took a seat at the teacher’s desk without acknowledging the presence of students. He might have been overlooked in a crowd, except for his hair. The thin, salt-and-pepper locks twisted and stood away from his face as if electrified. His glasses resembled the bottom of a coke bottle in thickness, and they magnified his eyes into great, blue blobs. “Physics,” he said. Standing, straightening his bow tie, he swept his eyes across the classroom. “The study of matter and motion. It is the basis of the discipline of mechanical engineering.” Bracing himself on widespread hands, he leaned over his desk. His glare focused on a student in the front row, while his voice rumbled like distant thunder. “This is not a class for girls.”

What’s the first binge-worthy book you read and why was it a must-read?

When I was in middle school, I checked “Gone With the Wind” out of the library and secretly devoured it. I loved Scarlett O’Hara’s adventures, and also enjoyed the thrill of reading a book I knew my parents would not approve of.

What makes your featured book a binge-worthy read?

It takes the reader back to the 1960s, when a “nice” girl never phoned a boy, wore too much makeup, bleached her hair, or kissed on a first date. The story is loosely based on some of my experiences growing up as a pastor’s daughter.
