Jerry Spinelli, . . Knopf, $8.95 (186pp) ISBN 978-0-375-82233-9

"Part fairy godmother, part outcast, part dream-come-true, the star of Spinelli's novel shares many of the mythical qualities as the protagonist of his Maniac Magee. Spinelli poses searching questions about loyalty to one's friends and oneself and leaves readers to form their own answers," said PW in our Best Books citation. Ages 12-up. (May)
