Eleanor "Groovy" Robinson is distraught when her father is taken to jail and she learns of her mother's involvement in his arrest. Neither her love of cooking nor her friends’ concern can rouse Groovy from her doldrums. How do people show caring for one another? How do people change? How do people accept change in others? Cassandra Morris brings Groovy's personality to life as she wrestles with these problems. Morris's youthful presentation makes for a convincing 11-year-old. She elongates words and uses emphasis in a way that brings the head tosses and eye rolls vividly to mind. The distinctive voice Morris gives to each character does justice to this multifaceted story.
