Overview

Newbery Honor author Ann M. Martin's gripping, widely acclaimed novel of a girl confronting the perils of friendship and the conflicts of community. Belle Teal's life isn't easy, but she gets by.

Her best friends are up against some big problems.

This book is addictive and wonderful, with sad and happy parts. Belle Teal must get through life with a forgetful grandma, a loving mother, a prissy brat who has a secret and a boy who she soon becomes friends with. Great book with wonderful lesson! A++++

How come nobody wrote a review for this book? You guys are missing a fun book filled with love, courage, and family affairs. My math teacher, who is also a reading teacher, recommended this book and I LOVED it! I think everybody who does not like blacks should read this book and learn what it is like for blacks to cope with whites. Ann M. Martin is a best-selling author and I really praise her work!

Belle Teal is 10-11 year old girl that lives out in that country that has trouble with her new friends and her old friends and what she does to overcome this obstacle. But what she does hurts the people she cares about. Read this exciting book Belle Teal

She walked in, her guitar in hand. She looked around before walking to a chair, sitting down. She began stumming her guitar lightly. <br> -[A'lijah]- <p> She padded in, shyly looking around. She sat down at an empty bench, pulling her legs up on it. <br> -{Aleesia}- <p> He ambled in, yawning softly. He boredly looked around before pulling his phone out, stuffing his free hand in his pocket. <br> -&bull;Alec&bull;-

When I was reading this, it made me very mad, because she needs t take english ir something I say this because almost all the time she will write something like "me and Darryl huddle up" and it should clearly be "Darryl and I huddle up." She did this a lot in this book, she made the Belle Teal most of the time put herself first (ex: "me and Darryl," it should have been "Darryl and me" if she was supposed to use "me" but she wasn't, she was supposed to use "I"), and she almost always puts "me" when she should have put "I". Why not just put "me think" if your going to put "me and Darryl huddle up" because it's just as bad!!! She does things like this so often in this book, and I had to keep putting it down, because I was getting so mad. Don't get me wrong, I really, really, really, really, really like Ann M. Martin, I just think she should know these things. I knew these thngs when I was 7!!!! Very nice book, but the grammer was very distracting.

I have read Belle Teal four times and everytime I finish reading it I am left in awe, curiosity and so much more. It is so intense. It also teaches a very good lesson and it talks about racism against black people. Everyone should read this book it's outstanding!!
