Words from my Emma June

Eleven year-old Emma June from The Moonshine Thicket says:

And then I remember. Betty had told Mama her husband died. Frank said his Daddy left. Betty Bedford lied to Mama. She’s a low down, no-account, good-for-nothing, loose-knee-ed, tarty, liar-mama.

I picture walking up to Betty’s shabby-shack and knocking out her teeth when she answers the door.”
