Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Beset by confusion and jealousy when her younger sister becomes more popular than she is, Sharon takes a summer mother's helper position 60 miles away. Her charge, preschooler Tim, is precocious and miserably spoiled, and his cold mother won't let him live a normal life. Why is she so tense and overprotective? In unfolding the tragedy of crib death that lies behind the mystery, Sharon gains perspective about her own past year. Smith gives the characters both quick-paced action, and sharp, cerebral dialogue and internal monologue. Sharon's funny introspection is exemplified by her questions to herself, ``What would Mary Poppins have done?'' An impressive debut, detailing the effects of family constellations. (1014)
School Library Journal
Gr 7-10 In this story of sibling rivalry, the spotlight is shining on 17-year-old Sharon's multi-talented and beautiful younger sister, Penny. That light is so bright that it blinds Sharon to her own self-worth. Attempting to gain some perspective and confidence, she accepts a live-in summer babysitting job in a town 60 miles away. The job isn't the ego-builder she'd hoped for. Three-year-old Tim is a realistic combination of teddy bear and terror, but Sharon's real problem is Tim's mother Andrea, a talented painter who rejected her art after suffering some mysterious trauma. Andrea wants complete control over her small family and views Sharon's presence as a threat. Local boy Jeremy tries to convince Sharon of her own value, but it isn't until Tim's father is lost in a boating accident and Sharon successfully manages the crisis that she is able to believe in her own strengths. The story follows the traditional summer coming-of-age formula but with enough extra elements to attract a wide readershipsibling rivalry, babysitting, high-school dramatics, romance and the mild mystery of Andrea's art. A fast-paced plot, crisp believable dialogue and characters who remain appealing despite their flaws are sure to make this title popular with the ``light read'' crowd. Heide Piehler, Shorewood Public Library, Wis.
