Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Newbery Honor author Ann M. Martin's gripping, widely acclaimed novel of a girl confronting the perils of friendship and the conflicts of community.

Belle Teal's life isn't easy, but she gets by. She lives with her mother and grandmother far out in the country. They don't have much money, but Belle Teal feels rich with their love. As school begins, Belle Teal faces unexpected challenges. Her best friends are up against some big problems. And there are two new students in Belle Teal's class: a shy boy caught in the town's furor over desegregation, and a snob who has problems of her own. As her world falls apart, Belle Teal discovers the importance of sticking together.

Synopsis:

Belle Teal Harper is used to going without. She lives with her mother and grandmother far out in the country. Her fifth-grade back-to-school outfit is her fourth-grade dress. Still, Belle Teal feels rich with the love of her family and her best friends, Clarice and Little Boss. But as school begins, Belle Teal faces challenges. Gran's memory is slipping away. Mama works longer hours to support the family. Little Boss's secret troubled relationship with his father, Big Boss, is pushing him to extremes. And there are two new students in Belle Teal's class: a shy African-American boy caught in the town's furor over desegregation, and a girl whose outward confidence belies the secret she holds close.

Synopsis:

Now in paperback from the Newbery Honor-winning author of "A Corner of the Universe"--a moving tale that tackles issues of prejudice and community with a child-friendly eye.
