SummaryAdd a Summary
Having seven nasty older brothers is tough enough if you’re a boy, but as the sole girl in her family it’s May Amelia who has to put up with them. Not that having a father who wishes you were a boy helps. In May Amelia’s Finn-descended family it’s her father who has the final word, so when a man comes to the area with plans to make everyone rich all the neighbors look to see what May Amelia’s Pappa does first. With May Amelia as his translator, her father determines that the deal is good, effectively cooking the goose of all his neighbors when the no goodnik takes off with all their dough. Now Amelia is bearing the brunt of the blame, her family is in tatters, and things could simply not get worse. That is, until she comes up with a beautiful notion that might be the saving of them all.
