Product Description

Everyone has a favorite relative. For Sarah Jean, it's her Uncle Jed, who's saved his whole life for his own barber shop. One day, Sarah Jean gets sick; she gets taken to the hospital, where the doctors won't look at her until they're done with the white customers. When they finally do, they won't give her an operation until they're paid $300.00. Sarah Jean's mama keeps her alive through the night, until Uncle Jed's sacrifice gets her the operation she needs to live. Uncle Jed keeps saving; but when the Great Depression hits, he loses all his money again. A wonderful story of perseverence and hard work, young readers will cheer when Uncle Jed finally achieves his dream.
