Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Amy gets caught up in her best friend's scheme to save the environment. Ages 8-12. (Apr.)
The ALAN Review - Christy Hammer
Although the plot centers on a plan by some sixth-grade students to shock classmates into being environmentally aware, Hands Around Lincoln School addresses many other issues, including friendship, shyness, cliques, stage fright, problem solving, and responsibility. As the novel progresses, Amy, the main character, becomes more aware of her own beliefs and gains the courage to stand up for them, even temporarily alienating her best friend Lindsay. At first, Save the Earth Club seems to be the "right" kind of thing to do, but Amy internalizes the ideals of the club. She identifies with the young girl in Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes and devises a plan to involve students in the entire school to join hands, symbolizing holding hands around the earth, committing themselves to helping create a better a world. Believable characters, realistic dialogue, and a fast-moving plot will maintain the interest of many fifth- and sixth-grade students.
School Library Journal
Gr 4-6-Amy, a shy sixth grader, is frequently caught up in the escapades of her mercurial best friend, so when Lindsay decides to form a Save the Earth Club at school, Amy goes along with the plan. They enlist the participation of the '60s-obsessed twins, Ruth and Heather, and find a teacher to be their advisor. They meet moderate success with a project to hold classroom discussions on Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes, and ultimately triumph when their skit, a mock TV-talk show demonstrating the negative effects of war toys and violent video games, wins the school talent contest. Things begin to unravel when Lindsay is suspended for supposedly spray painting the school's front door; she quits the club and disappears. All is resolved as the students join hands around the school to celebrate Earth Day. While there is a lot happening here to both interest and involve readers, some of the situations and dialogue do not ring true. Ms. Peterson's insistence that the club limit its membership to the four girls, and TV coverage of the school's Earth Day event when a student has ostensibly disappeared the previous day are hard to believe. Amy's brother, who calls himself The Avenger, is truly a mean-spirited child, and Lindsay's serious emotional problems are glossed over. Readers will, however, recognize the power of peer pressure, the need to belong, the beginnings of romance, and the importance of Amy's ability to overcome her shyness and defend her rights.-Marie Orlando, Suffolk Cooperative Library System, Bellport, NY
Hazel Rochman
Led by her best friend, Lindsay, sixth-grader Amy helps start a Save the Earth Club in her school. They want to raise awareness about pollution, famine, global warming, and nuclear proliferation, and their special focus is on peace. The messages overwhelm the story, which moves along with various plot contrivances and coincidences. Of course, the issues are of crucial interest to many young people, and Asch does succeed in dramatizing the debate. Sometimes comedy lightens things up, as in the case of Amy's vengeful little brother who loves war games. Sometimes personal anguish humanizes the politics, as in the story of Hiroshima victim Sadako, who inspires Amy to overcome her shyness, stand up to her bossy friend, and organize a schoolwide ceremony for peace.
