May Amelia Jackson captured readers' hearts in the Newbery Honor Book Our Only May Amelia. Now, after more than ten years, Jennifer Holm is bringing this beloved character back in a beautifully written story that's both heartbreaking and hilarious.

May Amelia lives with her pioneer family on a farm in 1900, but she just can't act the part of a proper young lady -- and it doesn't help that she has seven brothers and a Pappa who proclaim that Girls Are Useless. May Amelia jumps at the chance to earn her father's respect when he asks her to translate for a gentleman who's interested in buying their land and making them rich. But when the deal turns out to be a scam, Pappa places all the blame on May. It's going to take a lot of sisu -- that's Finnish for guts -- to make things right.
