Summary
This bittersweet and sharply observed masterpiece recounts a year in the life of twelve-year-old Francie Coffin. It is the summer of 1934, and nowhere are the effects of the Great Depression more apparent than in Harlem. But Harlem is also home to community's anger, humor, and vitality, the paradoxical cradle of young Francie's innocence and dreams-just like the daily numbers game played for a the small glint of hope that it promises but will never fulfill
