The Lost Songs

By: Caroline B. Cooney

BOOK TALK

 

When Lutie Painter decides to cut class and take the city bus north instead of the school bus west, her aunt and uncle have no way of preventing her from heading straight into danger.  All around her town, people are rising and going about their day—Lutie’s pastor, a new girl at school, a rich boy who has never had to make an effort at anything, and a man burning up with anger.  Their lives intertwine in an unexpected way—through Lutie’s ancestors and the Laundry List songs she inherited from them.  A deeply rich, inspirational novel about big changes in a small Southern community.
