General Note: "Melanie Kroupa books."
Summary, etc.: In New Orleans in 1898, while her mother talks of saving to buy land and her father insists on the importance of an education, young Irish immigrant Maggie McCrary is determined to find her own way in the new place they call home. "In Amerikay," Maggie's da has told her, "we will start anew." It's 1898, and Maggie McCrary and her family have just crossed the ocean to settle in New Orleans. America is the answer to her father's dream of books and proper learning. For her mother, it offers the chance to buy land. But living in a crowded tenement watching her neighbors work hard all day, Maggie isn't sure she likes Amerikay. Then Maggie discovers kinship in Nathan, an African American boy, and hope in the ragtime music he plays - music that seems to shout: Free! Free! I choose who I will be!
