Book Description

Franny Hansen is a 10-year-old piano prodigy living in Rusty Nail, Minnesota. Once the Coot Capitol of the world, in 1953 its just a run-of-the-mill town with one traffic light and a bizarre cast of characters. Shes long exhausted the talents of the towns only piano teacher and seems destined to perform at church events and school assemblies, until a mysterious Russian woman arrives in Rusty Nail. Frannys neighbors are convinced the Commie is a threat to their American way of life, but Frannys not so sure. Could this stranger be her ticket out of Rusty Nail?

Lesley M. M. Blume returns with the poignant and laugh-out-loud funny story of one girls attempt to pursue the American dream in small town America.

    Sometimes engaging, but this one seemed fairly predictable to me. The take on small town MN in the 1950s also was abrasively condescending; the men are lumpy, clueless yokels, the women are lumpy, gossipy yokels. Yes, McCarthyism (sp?) was idiotic. Yes, worrying about the Commies invading your small town and grabbing the apple pie from your cold, dead hands was ridiculous. Still, how about some historical context or empathy?
    I am aware, however, that actual kids reading it might appreciate the rather shallow townspeople characters and enjoy laughing at their follies...
