I recently discovered this book and read it in two days, pacing myself. It's about a young girl named Anna Glory who was the only non-singing member of a family of gospel singers. I can relate to this because my family sings gospel too but I don't because I get stage fright and don't feel as talented as the rest. She was also underappreciated; nobody really noticed her presence, which is how I ofen feel. But an unexpected person from the past, Uncle Newt, showed up for Anna. She had a kinship with him because he was a convict that the family despised. Together, these two outcasts saved the rest of the family from death. This was a..well..interesting portrayal of a family. The twin boys, who one would expect to be really close, always played tricks on each other. Mrs. Glory favored the oldest child, a girl nicknamed "Angel". Mr. Glory lost the "joy of religion" the instant he exited a stage. Not a very Christianlike family. As Newt said, Anna was the best of them. I reccomend "Glory Girl" to anyone who feels as if they don't belong or count in the world.
