Goodbye, Walter Malinski by Helen Recorvits

It is 1934, and the Depression is making life tough for Wanda Malinskis family. Her father has been laid off from his job at the mill, so the family must rely on her older sisters meager earnings to make ends meet. There is no money for new shoes, and its cabbage soup for dinner every night, Mr. Malinski is ashamed and frustrated by his powerlessness, and takes it out on Wandas big brother, Walter. Wanda sees that Walter is desperate to make his father proud, even if it means leaving home to join President Roosevelts Civilian Conservation Corps. But he never gets the chance. Direct, understated writing and beautifully rendered pencil drawings capture the high emotional density of an immigrant familys experience as tragedy gives way to hope, and the Polish immigrant community bands together to mend a familys broken heart.
