We forgot this one when we were talking about "Integration" books recently. Others by this author that sort of fall into that category are The Empty Schoolhouse and Marchers for the Dream. Very different from her Orpheline books (popular but somewhat interchangeable, as I recall) and the two about Luvvy, which I believe were based on her own childhood and are outstanding.

This book was published in 1970. It was a library discard, still has the pocket glued to the inside cover. I chuckled when Ann Aurelia's foster mom gave her a dollar and sent her to the store to buy bread, sugar, & a treat. My how times have changed!
