Gr 3-5-In this amusing story, Sharie, 10, who has hair that "looks like it's been plugged into a 200-volt live wire," is trying to cope with life's vicissitudes: a piano recital; the uncertainty of getting a longed-for ride on a roller coaster since she yelled at her piano teacher; and an older sister who has "beautiful creamy brown skin, [and] coal black curly hair," and to whom she is "allergic." In the end, Momma intervenes and the sisters get along better, Sharie shows a talent for talking before an audience, and her piano teacher recommends that she study acting or public speaking. Although the questions or cliff-hangers at the ends of chapters become monotonous, Medearis has a good ear for dialogue and humorously depicts the trials and tribulations of preadolescent life. Sharie learns to deal with her jealousy, control her anger, and accept herself. An additional purchase.-Marilyn Ackerman, Brooklyn Public Library, NY Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
