Autumn Street

Lois Lowry. Yearling Books, $5.99 (188pp) ISBN 978-0-440-40344-9

Liz, now grown, remembers a time in her childhood when her father was away in the army, her mother and sister busy, her grandparents remote. She turned for friendship to Tatie, a black cook, and Tatie's son Charles, a friendship that led to tragedy. PW said this story ""surpasses Lowry's finest in sensitivity and impact. All the characters are wonderfully humanized and memorable.'' (10up)
