Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
In 1957, Peggy Davies's family moves when her minister father gets a new church. Shy Peggy's adjustments are the focus of this undramatic yet moving novel. The lie she tells to be popular inevitably rebounds. She reluctantly becomes friends vary wording? ``befriend'' below with her younger, nerdy neighbor, George, and together the pair defies the small-town social taboos by befriending a Chinese gardener. Peggy's small victories and adventures add up to a convincing portrayal of quiet maturation. Ellis's ( A Family Project ) evocation of characters in a more peaceful era will have readers looking forward to more of her well-told and comforting novels. Ages 9-12. (Apr.)
School Library Journal
Gr 4-7-- Moving is never easy. It means a new school, new kids, and for Peggy, the youngest daughter of a minister, it means a new church. She learns a great deal about herself as she allows herself to become friends with George, the son of a refugee janitor, and with Sing, a Chinese gardener and caretaker. Peggy overcomes much of her shyness, making new, unexpected friends during the end of the school year and that summer as she and George enter a puppet competition. Plausible characters in real life situations carry this realistic novel. Although set in 1957, Ellis has captured universal fears and feelings not unique to any specific period. Although problems are introduced, they are almost secondary. This novel is as well paced and well told as Ellis' A Family Project (McElderry, 1988). --Maria B. Salvadore, District of Columbia Pub . Lib .
School Library Journal
Gr 4-7-A painfully shy minister's daughter learns to look outward rather than dwell on her own insecurities when she encounters prejudice, arrogance, and shortsightedness in an elderly neighbor. Strong personalities emerge in a rewarding novel that explores the true meaning of friendship and conviction. (Mar., 1990)
