Mama RubyBook - 2011
Growing up in Shreveport, Louisiana, Ruby Jean Upshaw is the kind of girl who knows what she wants and knows how to get it and only Othella Mae Cartier, daughter of the town tramp, understands what makes Ruby tick. When Ruby discovers she's pregnant, she's scared for the first time in her life. After hiding her growing belly with baggy dresses, Ruby secretly gives birth to a baby girl at Othella's house. With few choices, Othella talks Ruby into giving the child away - and running off with her to New Orleans. But Ruby soon realises her mistake...
