The Not So Great Depression, by Amy Goldman Koss
Cute and somewhat sociologically interesting childrens'/YA book. Jacki and her family have always been lucky, but after her mother is laid off, and their savings are depleted by risky investments, everything changes. Her older sister Brooke can no longer count on being able to afford the universities of her choice, despite having aced her SATS and spending years building up application material, Jacki suddenly finds that piano lessons aren't just a hassle, and much more. Well done, but not a great read.
