Bovey has a lot to worry about. She doesnt know who her father is- her old biddy of a grandmother keeps interfering in her life- her best friend, Robert, desperately needs new glasses that his family cant afford- and mean Dickie Whitten teases Robert until Jessie has no choice but to punch him out.When some New York City reporters show up in Beulah County to research a story about the War on Poverty, Jessie sees a way to solve one of her problems.

She can charge money for showing the reporters around town so they can take pictures of the local color and use it to help pay for Roberts glasses. But her plan backfires spectacularly, and Jessie learns some big lessons--and some big secrets as well.A small Kentucky town and its quirky inhabitants are vividly evoked in Shutta Crums warm, atmospheric coming-of-age story, which handles multiple serious themes with a light touch.
