Fifth-grader Esmé has been told all her life that she is a child who is “broke,” but the memories she has of her life growing up in urban Chicago reveal a life rich in adventure, unique experiences, and love. Since Esmé Raji Codell reads her own story, the listener is provided with the opportunity to engage with it exactly the way she intends. One might assume this is a story for children, but, while it is suitable for children, adults will find themselves smiling and reminiscing about their old neighborhoods and the creative ways they used to pass the time.
