Summary
"Mama Rosie works as a school janitor to support her daughters, teenager Billie Jean and older half-sisters Norma and Ruth Ann. The family lives in a disheveled rental house, which they share with Mama Rose's mother, Mu' Dear and Mu' Dear's boyfriend Herbert. Although both the pregnant Ruth Ann and Norma have several children, neither is married or plans to leave the house. Billie Jean, who believes that a career as a professional dancer will lead her out of poverty and prevent her from suffering her sisters' fate, practices daily despite their resentment and constant taunting."--Container
