Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
``Miranda's escapades should tickle the funnybones of fans of fat Glenda,'' observed PW about the money-making schemes of this irrepressible African American heroine. Ages 8-12. (May)
School Library Journal
Gr 4-7-- Believing that her thick eye glasses make her unattractive, Miranda has her heart set on contact lenses. Told by her parents that contacts are not within their budget, she makes up her mind to get a summer job and buy them herself. She lands a two-week stint as a camp counselor, works in a grocery store--until she's forced to confess that she is underage--and then hits upon a dog-walking scheme. She not only is able to buy the longed-for lenses; she also works out her problems with a hostile classmate and deals with her fears about a neighbor's huge dog. This first-person narrative chronicles the daily ups and downs of an average, well-adjusted African-American teen who gets along well with her parents and has typical feelings about school and friends. However, there are several minor problems in the plotting. It seems unrealistic for a summer camp to hire a counselor from a phone conversation without an application, interview, or recommendations. In the same vein, it is also unlikely that a large grocery establishment would accept an applicant without a social security number. However, such quibbles will not deter readers from enjoying a book about a girl who sets her goal and goes about achieving it. The story is simply told, and the dialogue has an authentic ring. --Phyllis G. Sidorsky, National Cathedral School, Washington, DC

    Miranda the un stoppable

    There is a girl named Miranda who wants to have contacts instead of her thick glasses. She asked her parents if she could have some, but they said they didn¿t have enough money. Miranda was real anxious to get her contacts so she started to think of summer jobs she could do.There is a girl named Miranda who wants to have contacts instead of her thick glasses. She asked her parents if she could have some, but they said they didn¿t have enough money. Miranda was real anxious to get her contacts so she started to think of summer jobs she could do.A couple days past and Miranda was found with no contact lenses. Then finally she reached enough money to buy them! It cost her $125.00, but she did it. Even though Miranda had everything she wanted. She thought to herself¿ I will stay with this job for the rest of the summer.
