about this item

In the world of children's literature, Louise Fitzhugh's Harriet the Spy and The Long Secret are widely recognized as epoch-making. They have been received by young readers, year after year, with excitement and love. Nobody's Family is Going to Change—the story of an African American family in New York in the 1970s—shares the vigorous sense of comedy and unflinching fidelity to the real world that has made Fitzhugh's other books into classics.

Willie, seven years old, wants to dance. Emma, his older sister, wants to be a lawyer. Is there something wrong with them? Or is there something wrong with their parents, whose dreams for their children, the ordinary dreams of New York's black middle class, have little to do with what the children want?
