Publisher Comments:

Newbery Honor medalist Ann M. Martin's "unforgettable" (Booklist, starred) family story, now in paperback

"In 1963, Ellie's mother, Doris Day Dingman, was crowned the Bosetti Beauty at Mr. Bosetti's supermarket, President John F. Kennedy was assassinated, and the Dingmans began to fall apart." So begins 11-yr-old Eleanor Roosevelt Dingman's story. Ellie, who is about to start 6th grade in the small town of Spectacle, NY, is the oldest child in her off-center family. Her father works construction jobs, while her mother, Doris, has only one dream - to become a rich and famous actress. But when that dream leads to Doris's abandonment of the family, it is Ellie who is called upon to take charge.

Review:

"'Martin, who explored with such insight the themes of ostracism and family conflict in Belle Teal and A Corner of the Universe, affectingly reexamines them in this third novel set in the 1960s,' PW said of this tale in which a girl's mother abandons the family to pursue a career as an actress. Ages 10-14." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
