Freedom Jane McKenzie isn’t good at following
the rules. She doesn’t like any of the things that girls are supposed to like.
She’s good at fishing, getting into trouble, and playing marbles. All she wants
is to enter the marble competition at the Autumn Jubilee and show the boys in
the neighborhood that she’s the best player. If she can’t be the Marble King,
then she’ll be the Marble Queen.
First, Freedom has to convince her mother to
let her enter. But there’s a new baby on the way, Freedom’s daddy is drinking
too much, her little brother is a handful, and her mother is even more
difficult than usual. Freedom learns that when it comes to love, friendship,
and family, sometimes there are no rules. Set in 1959, The Marble Queen is
a timeless story about growing up. Download and start listening now!
