Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Gail C. Krause
Julie Albright, an up-and-coming basketball star on the boy's middle grade team is plagued by the recent divorce of her parents. Living with her mother and her older sister, she looks forward to her visits with her dad. On one such visit, he gives Julie a tape recorder so she can interview members of her family for a school project. Julie is supported during this difficult time by her two best friends. There is Ivy, who lives across the street from Julie's dad, and there is T.J., a boy Julie plays basketball with at her new school. During the course of this story, Julie works through her family problems and brings her family closer together, but not in the way she had hoped. Along the way, she learns responsibility and develops an understanding that family is family no matter where they live. Fast-paced and easy to read, this "American Girl" story is set in 1974. It gives readers a realistic feel for growing up in the seventies.
