Get Out Philip Hall

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Gwendolyn Bradley
High-spirited Beth Lambert is an organizing force and leader among her peers; she is a top student in her sixth-grade class, runs the Pretty Pennies girls club, is the winner of a 4-H prize, and expects to receive another prize, for leadership, from her church. But her hopes are devastated when Philip Hall wins instead--worse, Beth humiliates herself by leaping up to claim the prize she has not won in front of the whole church. Beth immediately sets out to recoup her pride by organizing a race in which the Pretty Pennies plan to defeat a group of boys including Philip. The whole town enjoys the festivities Beth arranges, but she loses the race because she has not read the rules. The Pretty Pennies are enraged, Beth is humiliated, and things go downhill from there. But with support from her loving family and, as it turns out, from Philip Hall, Beth regains her spunk. The story is engaging and well written, it is nice to read about middle schoolers who are not alienated from their parents, and, best of all, Bette Greene avoids the all-too-common author's trick of equating maturity for girls with outgrowing assertiveness and an independent spirit. 1999 (orig.
