Personalized gift inscription "to the Kemper children" from the author on behalf of the children's aunt. Signed by the author beneath the inscription. Story of 12-year-old Juanita, a young Mexican-American girl, her family, and their struggles and triumphs against a backdrop of poverty in a Texas barrio.

That scene provided inspiration for this story.
