Overview

In this paperback debut, Alison Pollet brings us the story of an observant uptown girl named Penelope, whose posh upbringing can't protect her from changes at home and at school.

It's 1981, and nothing is going right in Penelope's life. She has just started seventh grade at Elston Prep, and she and her best friend Stacy aren't getting along. Stacy is all caught up in who's wearing what to whose Bar Mitzvah, and has even become friends with Annabella and Pia, two of the biggest snobs at Elston! At home, things are no better: there's a new mother's helper to contend with, and Penelope's little brother Nathaniel just won't leave her alone. And when her parents are at home--which is rare--all they do is fight.

    Nobody was here- a seventh grade tale

    Toniann Loria Period one, LA, Nobody was here-by Alison Pollet It's 1981 and Penelope Schwartzbaum is adrift. This story is about a girl named Penelope Schwartzbaum as she goes through life in a school called Elston Prep now that she is starting the seventh grade every-thing feels unfamiliar, the campus, the classes, and even her best friend Stacy. Now that Stacy has joined a snobby clique of girls who hate the new kids at Elston, and does not even notice that their friendship is drifting away. Now at home things get even worse, from new babysitters, a weird little brother, and parents fighting. But she tries to ignore her problems, but ignoring them might get the best best of her. I liked this story because I like things or books that take place in the 90's and also because I'm in the seventh grade so I can also relate.
