More than anything, ten-year-old Weezie wants to please her Momma. She babysits her spoiled half-sister, Ruth Ann, and little Jackson. She makes tea for Momma in Gramma Emmeline's beautiful teapot. She even tries to cook dinner. But nothing turns out quite right. And Momma is never pleased. Hard times and a Daddy who ran off before she was born seem to have stolen all of Momma's love. If only Weezie could find her Daddy, she's sure her life would be happier.
