In this second volume of the Joe Joe in the City series, the serious-minded but likable Joe Joe faces his peers who ridicule him for dreaming of attending college one day. Joe Joe realizes that attaining this dream won`t be easy, either personally or financially. When searching for answers, Joe Joe discovers a book about Mary McLeod Bethune, an influential African American woman who overcame poverty and the lack of a formal education at an early age to become the founder of a college and a government worker for the Franklin D. Roosevelt administration. In this lesson on tough choices, Joe Joe faces a decision that results in his own moral, spiritual, and emotional growth.
