Gettin' Through Thursday
Lee & Low
On Thursdays, the day before payday, spirits are as low as provisions. Thursday is also the day report cards arrive, and Andre is excited and proud of his grades, but he's also worried because Mama has promised a party for any child who makes the honor roll. How will she throw a party when report card day falls on Thursday?
