Summary, etc.:
Possum Porter has had it with change. First she lost Mama, leaving a hole nothing can fill. And now, instead of trying to return to some kind of normal, Daddy's sending Possum to school. A real school, where some Yankee teacher will try to erase all the useful things Mama taught Possum during their lessons at home. So Possum comes up with a plan. If she can prove that she already knows everything worth knowing, Daddy will let her quit school and stay where she belongs.But unfortunately, Possum doesn't shoot to the top of the class like she expected. Even worse, the unmarried Yankee teacher seems to have her eyes on Possum's Daddy. With time running out, Possum decides to do something drastic to get away from school... and get Daddy out of Ms. Arthington's clutches.
