Kaye Gibbons’ first novel, Ellen Foster, introduces an eleven year old girl who can stand with Huck Finn and Holden Caufield in American literature. Ellen recounts her determination to overcome her life of abuse, neglect, poverty, and cruelty to find a place in a secure, nurturing family. The moving narrative is often hilarious. Walker Percy called it, “The real thing.”
