Excerpt

You Are Who They Say You Are

They say in the seventh grade

you are who they say you are,

but how can that be true?

How can I be a

Godzilla-girl

lezzie loser

know-it-all

big mouth

beanpole

string bean

freaky tall

fall-down

spaz attack

brainiac

maniac

hopeless nerd

*bad word*

brown-nosing

teacher’s pet

showing off

just to get

attention—

oh,

and did I

mention:

flat-chested

(that’s true)

badly dressed

(says you)

social climber

(such a lie)

rabble-rouser

(well, I try)

tree-hugging

tofu-eating

button-wearing

sign-waving

slogan-shouting

protest-marching

troublemaking

hippie-dippy

throwback

to another

time and place?

How can I be all that?

It’s too many things to be.

How can I be all that and

still be true to the real me

while everyone is saying:

This

is

who

you

are.

"Synopsis" by , The Gang of Five is back in this third story from Paintbrush Falls. Addie Carle, the only girl in the group of friends is outspoken, opinionated, and sometimes…just a bit obnoxious.

But as seventh grade progresses, Addies not so sure anymore about who she is. It seems her tough exterior is just a little too tough and that doesnt help her deal with the turmoil she feels on the inside as she faces the pains of growing up.

Told in elegant, accessible verse, ADDIE ON THE INSIDE gives readers a look at a strong, smart, and sensitive girl struggling with the box society wants to put her in. Addie confronts experiences many readers will relate to: the loss of a beloved pet, first heartbreak, teasing…but also, friendship, love, and a growing confidence in ones self.
