Overview

Seventh grade should be a wonderful year for Katie Roberts. After all, she has twin baby brothers and Lucie, the best friend ever. Too bad Mama doesn't understand that wearing lipstick is how you get invited to snobby Pamela's party. And too bad Miss Casey makes Katie tutor Rudy Pergolizzi, who wears funny pants and doesn't know how to play baseball and act crazy like other boys. As in THE PRIVATE NOTEBOOK OF KATIE ROBERTS, AGE 11, winner of the Nutmeg Award, Katie's characteristic humor and spunk vividly reveal her world of confusing boys, no-nap babies, and the pull and tug of being 12 and having to face growing up.

In a series of journal entries, letters, pictures, and drawings, Katie relates her feelings about her mother, baby brothers, new friends, school, boys, the Italian immigrant she tutors, and growing up.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carolyn Mott Ford
The notebook provides a view of the ups and downs in twelve-year-old Katie's life. The notebook was a gift sent from Mrs. Leitstein who was a neighbor before Katie and her family moved to Texas. Twin baby brothers and the insistence of her teacher, Miss Casey, that Katie tutor Rudy Pergolizzi complicate Katie's life. Rudy is from Italy, wears funny clothes and does not fit in with the other kids. Katie's letters to Mrs. Leitstein are interspersed throughout and, when a family emergency arises, Mrs. Leitstein comes to help out. Eventually, a lovely romance blossoms with Rudy's old-country grandfather. The trials and tribulations of being twelve, such as wanting to wear lipstick, yearning for a party invitation and having a crush of the boy loom large in the diary entries, just as they do in the minds of most pre-teen girls.
School Library Journal
Gr 4-7-This third book about Katie Roberts is set in Texas in 1948. Katie, 12, pours her heart out in her diary and in her letters to Mrs. Leitstein, her old neighbor and dear friend back in New York City. She writes about her mother and stepfather, the antics of her infant twin brothers, her best friend Lucy, and the ups and downs of her life as a seventh grader. She also deals with her feelings about her father, who was killed in the war. When Rudy, a shy boy from Italy, joins her class, Katie is made his spelling tutor and reluctantly goes to the library at recess to help him. As time passes, however, her feelings about him begin to change. Historical details are nicely woven into the story as are the religious practices of Katie and Rudy's Jewish families. Pencil drawings add to the realism of the diary format and help to personalize the entries. Readers will empathize with Katie as she feels left out, wants to be popular, misses her old life in New York, longs for a boyfriend, and does thousands-maybe millions-of chores with no thanks. Although some of the subject matter is quite somber, this story is much more upbeat than titles in the "Dear America" series (Scholastic), which also use the diary format. With believable characters and a touch of romance, Hest's book should prove popular.-Barb Lawler, Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, PA
Kirkus Reviews
A second romp with irrepressible Katie (The Private Notebook of Katie Roberts, 1996) in a small Texas town in the late 1940s. Katie chronicles her ups and downs in the notebook that her elderly New York friend and neighbor, Mrs. Leitstein, sent for her 12th birthday. Katie writes letters to Mrs. Leitstein about her lifeþa fairly happy oneþwith her mother, new stepfather Sam, boisterous twin baby half-brothers, and her friends and foes at school. The concerns are low-key and elementary; she is assigned to help Rudy, an orphaned Italian-Jew who speaks little English, and at first Katie thinks it will ruin her life. When Sam opens a luncheonette, Katie is overjoyed, and settles down to concentrate on the really important things: snotty Pamela's party (to which Katie wasn't invited), the Valentine Dance, and wearing lipstick. Two clouds cross Katie's sunny horizon: Customers are scarce at the luncheonette; worse, Katie's mother is hit by a car and badly injured. A letter to Mrs. Leitstein brings her to Texas to take care of them all, where she meets and marries Rudy's grandfather. It's a rollicking story that balances humor and pre-adolescent angst with the larger canvas of post-WWII America. Lamut provides simple but amusing black-and-white line drawings. (Fiction. 8-12)

Meet the Author

Amy Hest introduced seven-year-old Katie Roberts in the acclaimed LOVE YOU, SOLDIER, which was about Katie, her mother, and the war that took Katie's father away. THE PRIVATE NOTEBOOK OF KATIE ROBERTS, AGE 11 continued her story as she and her mom moved to a Texas ranch, and the family expanded. Amy Hest says, "I loved the character of Katie so much that I followed her into seventh grade. There is a lot of me in Katie Roberts."

    This book is OUTSTANDING!

    This book is hilarious beside the fact that Amy Hest is a fabulous author! I was reading this book for the fifth time last night! I love this book! Between Katie's crushes and jealousy, friendship and heartbreak, it's just a great read.
