The books of Virginia Euwer Wolff's trilogy (Make Lemonade, True Believer, and This Full House) follow LaVaughn through her teen years. LaVaughn, whose father has died before the first book opens, faces challenges of poverty and being raised by a single mom. All around her many people are falling prey to bad schools, teenage pregnancy, and many other dangers awaiting inner city (and these days probably many) kids. Her single mom supports her but, of course, has some challenges of her own. Her friends help her, too, at times, but sometimes they need more and demand more than she has to give.

I found myself wanting to read just one more chapter, then just one more chapter, before I put the book down. The characters, situations, and writing are engrossing.

Each of the first two books can be read and enjoyed by itself. The conclusion of the trilogy, This Full House, however, is packed with surprises and will be enjoyed more if read after the first two. Without revealing too much, know that characters and situations from the first two books come back and are shown to be connected in ways I certainly never foresaw.

LaVaughn's actions are true to the character and her age. Sometimes she means well but messes things up so thoroughly, there seems no reason for hope, but LaVaughn is not someone to sit quietly or give up, even if she has to pause, has to reflect, has to figure out what, if anything, her next step might be.

This book and the first two in the trilogy are worth your time. The characters are interesting and human -- not superhuman achievers or less than human failures. You will find parts funny (such as the "Cross your legs for Jesus" chastity group), poignant (such as LaVaughn being so smitten with a beautiful boy she can scarcely breathe and think in his presence), and inspiring (such as her dedication to getting an education, despite the poverty and hardships around her). These books, written as a journal by LaVaughn, are quite an accomplishment.

This was a replacement book for my son's 7th grade teacher's in class library. The original was borrowed and never returned. It seems to be a popular book.

THIS FULL HOUSE is the conclusion to the MAKE LEMONADE trilogy by Virginia Euwer Wolff. It will be on store shelves in January of 2009. It has been fifteen years since the first book about LaVaughn and Jolly. Having just finished the Advanced Reader's Copy of THIS FULL HOUSE, I can say it was worth the wait.

High school student LaVaughn and single mother Jolly first met in MAKE LEMONADE. LaVaughn reluctantly took on the job of babysitter to Jolly's two young children. Watching Jolly struggle as a single, teen mother makes LaVaughn realize the importance of getting an education and making something of herself. What followed was TRUE BELIEVER and even more experience watching and helping Jolly make ends meet for her little family.

THIS FULL HOUSE provides a satisfying conclusion and a hopeful future for both LaVaughn and Jolly.

An interest in science and medicine along with a determination to attend college gives LaVaughn the encouragement to apply for a program designed to give girls like her a unique opportunity. The program, WIMS - Women in Medical Science - is run by Dr. Moore. She has dedicated her life to medicine and wants to offer other girls the chance to thrive and succeed, as well. Every Tuesday and Wednesday, LaVaughn has the privilege of attending lectures and working in labs to study and learn the science that has always fascinated her.

LaVaughn's life is filled with the WIMS classes, her own final high school classes, a job in the hospital laundry, watching Jolly's two kids while Jolly studies for her G.E.D., and juggling anything else that comes her way. With the encouragement of those around her, LaVaughn is beginning to think college might actually be in her future.

However, the constant desire to help her friend Jolly find the answers to her mysterious past are about to possibly derail the future she has fought so hard to plan. LaVaughn thinks she might have found the long-missing mother Jolly so desperately needs and wants in her life.

Those readers who have yet to discover this remarkable trilogy should stop by the library or bookstore and get their hands on a copy of MAKE LEMONADE. Meeting LaVaughn and Jolly in that first book will bring readers back until they reach the conclusion in THIS FULL HOUSE.

It was definitely a story worth waiting for.
