Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Eunice and her best friend Joy (stars of Which Way to the Nearest Wilderness? start a catering business the summer before eighth grade. Eunice needs money to buy deodorant (her mother insists that she smells like any 12-year-old girl should smell), and Joy hopes to take private dance lessons. But a boy named Robert falls for Joy, thereby breaking up the friendship, and Eunice is left to work alone. During a heat wave, she moves the operation into the centrally air-conditioned home of a girl she and Joy previously had scorned. While the best friends eventually patch up their differences, they've both moved beyond the exclusivity that once ruled them. Springstubb's story covers a lot of territory wittily. However, disparate elements seem slapped together, and there are inconsistenciesa 12-year-old, for example, probably wouldn't be in eighth grade. Ages 10-14. (June)
School Library Journal
Gr 4-7 Eunice and Joy, best friends for as long as they can remember, have an eventful summer. Not only do they begin their own catering business, but also their friendship is put to the test when Joy suddenly acquires a boyfriend. In her loneliness, Eunice becomes friendly with the class outcast. Both Eunice and Joy both learn not to judge their peers so harshly or unkindly. Eunice and Joy appeared in Springstubb's Which Way to the Nearest Wilderness? (Little, 1984), but readers need not have read it to enjoy this one. Eunice Gottlieb . . . is a funny and skillfully woven story of a friendship in the process of change. The characterizations are first-rate throughout, perfectly capturing the reality and trauma of being 12 years old. Denise A. Anton, Cornbelt Library System, Normal, Ill.
