Editorial Reviews

Christian Library Journal
[Paterson] skillfully weaves anecdotes and biblical truths together to show, rather than tell, basic tenets of the faith. The truths she shares are complex, but the manner in which she shares them is captivating and light-hearted. Like her novels, Bridge to Terebithia, and The Great Gilly Hopkins, this non-fiction meditation has all the elements of a read-aloud story.
Church & Synagogue Libraries
Who Am I? contains a straightforward common sense approach that offers youth consolation so they won't feel alone as they grapple with making difficult decisions to frustrating problems.
Provident Book Finder
Readers who cried through Bridge to Terabithia and laughed through The Great Gilly Hopkins will grow through their reading of Who Am I?
School Library Journal
Like all of her fiction, Who Am I? explores the concept of self in a difficult world with grace and thoughtfulness.
Walter Wangerin Jr.
So forthright, faithful, clear, common, and honest that any young people who read it will find themselves as much consoled as challenged. It holds them close and doesn't let them go.
School Library Journal
Gr 7-12-- This book was first written in the '60s for the Presbyterian church. In a fine introduction, Paterson explains that she has updated her text to reflect the changes she has made in her thinking and her understanding of Christianity. Like all of her fiction, Who Am I? explores the concept of self in a difficult world with grace and thoughtfulness. She makes her points through parables and stories, using words from the Bible, stories told by others, and scenarios she has created. Readers who enjoyed her Angels and Other Strangers (HarperCollins, 1991) will relate to this volume as well. Young adults who are struggling with major issues in their understandings of Christianity including ``How can terrible things happen if God is in the world?,'' ``What am I meant to do in this world?'' and ``What is death?'' will find comfort in her words. These are, of course, difficult topics, the object of volumes of theological study. There are no pat answers here. Paterson speaks strongly against the separation and discord caused by religious belief, racial grouping, or political boundaries. This is a useful book for public libraries that have young patrons interested in religious issues and for church libraries. --Barbara Chatton, College of Education, University of Wyoming, Laramie
