This Old Man - Lois Ruby. Go! These were the first words I heard Old Man say, in that hummingbird voice of his, and Wing had to translate even that much for me. It was three months more before I ever saw Old Man’s face. So my mother woke up and sent me to this place called Anza House. You’d call it a house for misfits; around here they call it a group home.
A spunky young girl forms an unlikely friendship with a dying Chinese man while living in a group home For Greta, having light and carefree Hackey hanging around her mom is a lot more fun than having an ordinary dad. But Hackey isn't her father-he's more like a pimp, and no matter how friendly he is, he still treats Greta's mom like dirt.
