Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Molly Lottmann has always treasured her place as the youngest member of the family. But as she watches her three siblings abandon her for their own busy lives, she wishes she could either turn back the clock or somehow catch up with them. Then, when fifth grade starts, her two best friends are both assigned to a different classroom and start spending time with a new girl. Backed up by her sympathetic parents, Molly stalwartly attempts to make her own way, and discovers that there are some rewards to growing up and moving on. Molly is realistically drawn and emerges with a well-developed personality. While Shreve captures Molly's feelings of frustration and loneliness, her frequent allusions to the title and its message risk adding a didactic overtone to this otherwise appetizing story. Molly's problems may be wrapped up a bit too neatly, but younger readers will find comfort also in the point made by Molly's sister: ``Everything won't change . . . just some things.'' Ages 8-up. (Aug.)
Children's Literature - Barbara Disckind
Molly, the baby of the Lottman family, is entering fifth grade. But her entire family is changing; her mother has gone back to work, her older sisters and brother act so unreasonable sometimes, and she can't really talk to her father about personal things. Nobody has time for her anymore, not even her best friends. Soon Molly decides that she needs to do something on her own, something special. She dreams about becoming an Olympic runner and so practices for her elementary school's sports day. In doing so, Molly learns about her own inner and physical strengths; she is growing up. 1995 (orig
School Library Journal
Gr 3-6-- Molly Lottmann, the youngest in her family, has had the same two best friends since kindergarten and is used to being the center of attention. Now, as she enters fifth grade, her world falls apart. Her siblings have no time for her, and her friends are in a different class. A new girl has taken her place in the trio, and Molly feels left out and left behind by everyone. She then signs up to run in the school's field day races, and puts herself on a training program, assisted by some friendly high school track runners. The discipline laps over into other areas and she begins to take charge of her life. Shreve shows real insight into the traumas of approaching adolescence. She is sympathetic yet honest in her portrayal of Molly, showing her strengths and her shortcomings. The plot moves along quickly and smoothly, aided by realistic, natural dialogue. The calm and supportive parents both make time to listen to their children. The ending is a bit predictable and neatly ties up all the loose ends into a happy conclusion, but it rings true in this gentle story of growing up. --Joyce Adams Burner, formerly at Spring Hill Middle School, KS
