Me and My Name

Mary Jane Miller, Author, D. Brosie, Editor Viking Children's Books $11.95 (0p) ISBN 978-0-670-83196-8
Erin Mitchell's sixth-grade year is filled with dilemmas. Her stepfather, Leo Zanin, wants to adopt her. Kim Adams, the most popular girl in school, is suddenly befriending her. And two very different boys, one outgoing and popular, the other shy and thoughtful, both like Erin. Will she hurt her real father's feelings if she becomes a Zanin? Should she confide in Kim? Which boy does she truly care about? Erin finally makes an important decision when her real father, after six years, asks her to visit him, and she reluctantly agrees. As Erin begins to trust in herself, the answers to her questions start falling into place. With humor and sensitivity, Miller explores the complexity and confusion of early adolescence. She gently reminds readers that solutions they seek elsewhere can often be found within themselves. A quick, enjoyable read. Ages 6-12. (Oct.)
