"This is family helping family . . . C’mon, Nell, be good to your own flesh and blood."

It’s summer vacation, and twelve-year-old Nell has gone upstate to spend a month with Aunt Ursa and cousin Foley. Daddy thinks this annual visit is good for Nell—gets her out of the city and gets some of Aunt Ursa’s home cooking in her belly. Nell thinks her dad just wants some time alone with his girlfriend. But visiting Aunt Ursa and Foley also means seeing Foley’s best friend, Slade. And that puts a smile on Nell’s face, even when she tries to stay cool.

Nell is enjoying the lazy days of summer, especially Foley’s antics and Slade’s flirty talk . . . until the boys surprise her with a frightening request. They want her to hide Foley’s Raven .25—a pistol her cousin got through a gun-running scheme—in her old dollhouse. Nell doesn’t know what to do. Suddenly, she doesn’t trust anyone, even herself. But when tragedy strikes, she knows she can’t handle it on her own. 
Comments to eBook Raven in a Dove House
Braendo
I found this book in a discount bin and can't for the life of me figure out why. This is one of the most timely and relevant books for urban children that I can think of. This book deals with issues of teen violence, death and family.
Would you hide a gun because a family member asked you to? Is it disloyal to your family not to hide it? What if you knew that your cousin had a gun and thought it was his ticket out of the nowhere oppression of a dead end town? Would you tell? Would you tell when his best friend ends up dead because of the gun?
This story of an African-American girl trying to decide where the bonds of family loyalty lie is one of the best I've ever seen. Her father dumps her at her Auntie's house each summer, even though he acts for all the world as if he is ashamed of where he came from now that he is a rich lawyer in New York. Her cousin wants out of this town and a life of priviledge in New York, just like her father. But does he understand that it took college and hard work to get there or does he think the Raven handgun he has hidden in her dollhouse is his ticket the easy way? Should she tell her Aunt that it is there?
For all the darkness of this book, it has an affirming, loving ending. The bonds and love of family pull close around this little girl, her troubled cousin and her father. The lesson learned here is that family and love, if trusted, will prevail.

(...)The book is amazing. Secrets, violence, love all wound into one book great for teens and adults alike. What disappointed me most about this book, was that when I read it 2 years ago, I found that it was not in print any more! I am glad it is back again. No one should miss out on any book.
