Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Katie DeWald
Julie's annoyance at being sent to detention spurs her to action; she becomes outraged by the punishment—meaningless sentence writing—that kids who are sent to detention have to endure. Fifth grader Julie sets out on a mission to change the detention system and decides that running for school president against a sixth grade boy may be the best way to improve the school. Julie chooses Joy as her running mate, but encounters difficulty as others make fun of the way Joy talks and discount their chances for winning the school election because Joy is deaf. Julie finds a way to win the election, while encouraging others to have respect and compassion for Joy. As the sixth title in the "American Girl" series chronicling Julie's life in the 1970s, this book focuses on the year 1974 and includes textual references to the upcoming presidential elections, the television show Happy Days, macrame key chains, and other staples of the era. The book includes a section called "Looking Back: Changes for America in the 1970s," offering information about the energy crisis, efforts to promote equality for women, and movements to improve the rights of the disabled, as well as other events of the decade. Fans of Julie and "American Girl" will enjoy reading about Julie's determination to effect positive change within her school and between her classmates while growing up in the 1970s.
