Little Audrey by Ruth White
Set in a coal mining town in 1948, Little Audrey is the story of the author's childhood but told from the perspective of her older sister Audrey. Audrey's mother has had problems ever since the death of one of her children several years before. Now she often has spells where she lives in her own world, drifting about in the real world. The girls' father is an abusive drunk who uses most of his pay for alcohol. The family is barely surviving until something happens that changes their lives forever.
