Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Pogrebin's work will help readers appreciate themselves as complex social beings as they learn to analyze the contradictions, crises and rewards of their own friendships. A chapter on ending friendships (``A mature person manages to grow both roots and wings'') is particularly illuminating. Not surprisingly, Pogrebin, one of the founding editors of Ms. magazine, and the author of Growing up Free, a blueprint for nonsexist childrearing, ``welcomes any sign of a breakdown between categories, be they racial or gender categories or the rigid dividing lines between the personal and professional aspects of our lives.'' She devotes the bulk of her book to exploring and encouraging alliances that bridge these gaps, as well as the boundaries of age, sexual preference, socio-economic levels and disability. She comes down hard on male friendship for a lack of intimacy but cautions that women sometimes become ``relationship-junkies.'' Throughout, the provocative thesis is enlivened with anecdotes, perceptively reasoned and well-documented, although some of the research is overwhelming. 50,000 first printing; $50,000 ad/promo; author tour. (November)
Library Journal
The explosion of the space shuttle Challenger on January 28, 1986 touched the emotions of all Americans. One of the astronauts whose death seemed even more of a tragedy was McAuliffe, a popular social studies teacher from Concord, New Hampshire and the first private citizen selected for space flight. This is her story, told by a journalist from her home town. Hohler's text documents McAuliffe's saga from Concord to NASA training in Houston to the brink of death at Cape Canaveral. It is touching: happy and at the same time, sad, since we know the fate of the Challenger crew. Without excessive pathos, Hohler uses interviews and personal recollections to reconstruct the life of a teacher's teacher. The author grew close to McAuliffe and her family, and his reflections make for a unique narrative. Highly recommended for most libraries. BOMC alternate. Boyd Childress, Auburn Univ. Lib., Ala.
School Library Journal
YA Reporter Hohler came to know Christa McAuliffe well during the seven months that he covered her story for her hometown newspaper, and he combines anecdotes and personal remembrances to bring her vividly to life as a talented teacher who happened to become an astronaut. Competing against more than 11,000 other applicants, she was chosen because she was exactly what NASA wanted: a spokesperson who could communicate the experience of space to the ordinary citizen and handle the resulting celebrity status. Hohler presents her as a true pioneer, much like the women of the Old West whose courage and resourcefulness she so admired. YAs will find her story absorbing and inspiring, and they will be reminded that there is still room for individual dreams to be realized. Rosemary Smith, Albright Middle School, Houston
