Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Delightful."—School Library Journal (10/00) School Library Journal

"As in her other titles in the series, delton blends astute insights into middle-grader psychology with infectious humor and a breezy style that will hook young readers."—Booklist (11/01/00) Booklist, ALA

Children's Literature
In this seventh book in the "Angel" series, Angel once again has the dilemma of an unwelcomed person in not only her house, but also her room. Her mother's disaster-prone friend Alyce has to leave her apartment for awhile and has moved in, so Angel and her best friend Edna figure out ways to move Alyce along—and out. Perhaps marrying? They put ads in the lonely hearts section but that doesn't work, nor does suggesting that Alyce find a better-paying job. Meanwhile, Angel is convinced that Alyce's presence is breaking up her parents' marriage and that Edna is causing a rift in their friendship by flirting with a boy both girls have befriended. Angel worries, as usual, but things work out, as usual, and this time without much purposeful effort by Angel. Weber's line art illustrations, about one for each of fifteen chapters, are light and humorous, in keeping with the tone of the novel. While fans of the series will enjoy this entry, it is not as strong a plot, nor do Angel's actions seem as compelling or the outcomes as rewarding as in other books in the series, such as Angel Spreads Her Wings. 2000, Houghton Mifflin, $15.00. Ages 7 to 11. Reviewer: Susan Hepler
School Library Journal
Gr 3-6-As if two siblings and a new stepfather weren't enough, 10-year-old Angel has a new worry. After a fire in her apartment, her mother's friend Alyce moves into the Poppadopolis home. With accident-prone Alyce and her shedding sheepdog sharing her room, what will resourceful Angel do? She'll find that woman a husband right away or, barring that, a job that will enable her to have a home of her own. With the help of her faithful friend Edna, Angel conducts a search for Alyce's perfect situation. The campaign is very funny, especially when laced with Angel's imagined worries about her new family and her desperation to be rid of her houseguest. One realistic black-and-white cartoon appears in each chapter. This delightful book is well suited to most libraries, but especially those that own the previous six books about Angel.-Kate McLean, Dekalb County Public Library, Tucker, GA Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
