Earrings! by Judith Viorst, Nola Langner Malone

I want them.

I need them.

I love them.

Beautiful earrings.

Glorious earrings.

What's a young girl supposed to do when her mom and dad refuse to let her have her ears pierced? She can argue, she can beg, she can swear that-if only they'll say yes -- she'll be nice to her little brother for one whole year. And whether or not she persuades them, she can find herself in this true and funny tail of a charmingly persistent girl determined to have what she wants and needs and loves: beautiful, glorious earrings for pierced ears.
