Calliope Day Falls . . . in Love?
Charles Haddad. Delacorte Press Books for Young Readers, $14.95 (160pp) ISBN 978-0-385-73070-9
The utterly outrageous girl named after a Greek muse, who made her debut in Meet Calliope Day, returns in Calliope Day Falls... in Love? by Charles Haddad, illus. by Margeaux Lucas. The resourceful heroine is thrown for a loop when she discovers a love poem to her best friend, the incredibly rich Noreen Catherwood. Can the mystery poet be bratty Rodney, who always seems to be-literally-bumping into the girls? Brainiac Kevin is another possibility. Calliope causes plenty of absurd crises as she uses all of her considerable imagination to crack the mystery.
