Sour Grapes The Wrath of Unemployment

Author: Patricia Ellyn Powell
Publisher: Page Publishing Inc
ISBN: 9781634178631
Release Date: 2015-03-16
Genre: Juvenile Fiction

There are not many books written about poverty, and for good reasons. Who wants to read about it? Those suffering the most, probably can't read at all. Those educated enough to write about the dilemma, will often realize that a fairly small audience will respond to such a topic, especially in capitalistic America. Rarely does a poor person get the opportunity to have a voice. But that just changed! Sour Grapes: The Wrath of UNemployment follows the real-life attempts of a Louisiana child to make money, from rubbing her mother's feet for a nickel to rubbing Aladdin's lamp, in her dreams of a world where there is no more poverty. Gifted with a free spirit and detached from desire for material wealth, Patricia Ellyn Powell chronicles countless jobs, peppering them with personal philosophy and famous quotations. The result is a work (No pun intended.) that will make one reconsider all things monetary. This contemporary saga is the second in a trilogy that is likely to span decades. Rotten Apples: We've Made Wormsmeat of Education, published by the teacher in 2002, tells the tale of an education system ravaged by injustices. The calls for reform have only grown louder with the passage of time and Powell has proven herself prophetic. Top Banana: A Peel, A Peal and Appeal will surface in due time, the third book in what the author calls a trilogy of Forbidden Fruits. The court case ripens as the writer writes, and that final publication will offer actual documents from the pending litigation that has gripped educators and conspiracy theorists in one of the happiest cities in America.
