Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Kate Bloomfield is back! And she's got a lot to say — about school and friends and parents, about cartwheels (she can't do them), about parsnips (she won't eat them), about being alone and being herself, about life and love...even about Dave Nelson, who doesn't know she's alive. Outspoken, funny, sometimes confused but always observant, Kate is writing it all down — "Hey World, Here I Am!" Notable Children's Books of 1989 (ALA)
Best Books of 1989 (SLJ)
Notable 1989 Children's Trade Books in Social Studies (NCSS/CBC)

Synopsis:

Whether she's writing about school, parents, friends, love, or turning cartwheels, Kate Bloomfield--a nice, clear-thinking early teenager--gets to the heart of things.

Synopsis:

Hey World, Here I Am!I said to the World, "I've arrived.
I, Kate Bloomfield, have come at last."
The World paid no attention.Don't you understand?
It's me, Kate Bloomfield."
The World ignored me, "Guess what?" I whispered. "I made it.
You know...Kate Bloomfield."
My Self bellowed, "YeaaaAAY, Kate!"
And spun six somersaults up the middle of Main Street.
The World turned.
"What did you say?" said the World.After all, I gave it its chance.
It's not my fault that it missed me.
