Read full description of the books:
I can't believe I have been on GoodReads for over a year and just remembered this book! I read it so many times when I was in middle school-it was one of my favorites!
I loved books like this one that were about kids who had to make it in the world alone because their parents are absent for some reason. (In this book, the parents were absent because they were DEAD!) I think I was drawn to that plot line because I just wanted my parents to leave me along. (Not that I wanted them dead. I didn't particularly want them dead. I just wanted them to leave me along.) But anyway...
There was a movie (maybe a made for TV movie) based on this book. I remember watching the movie, and I still remember rather vividly the scene where the older guy who wanted to marry the quiet, shy, maybe mentally slow older sister (played by the actress who went on to play Bailey on WKRP in Cincinnati) was really sick with some sort of lung ailment. The kids put him in a bathtub while he still wore his grimy looking long johns and poured steaming hot smothered onions over him. This scene led to a inside joke in my family that I am not even going to try to explain.

Read information about the authorAfter her first book, The Nurse's Dilemma (1966), most of her magazine articles and 16 novels for children were written with her husband, Bill.
Together, they produced more than a dozen novels for young adults. Their subject matter reveals a particular interest in mountain children who have both physical and mental problems. The Cleavers were three times nominated for the National Book Award, and their novels made multiple appearances on the American Library Associations list of "Notable Books." Settings often mirror the Cleavers' place of residence.
After Bill's death, Vera Cleaver wrote Sugar Blues (1984) and Sweetly Sings the Donkey (1985).
