Gr 4-7 Eunice and Joy, best friends for as long as they can remember, have an eventful summer. Not only do they begin their own catering business, but also their friendship is put to the test when Joy suddenly acquires a boyfriend. In her loneliness, Eunice becomes friendly with the class outcast. Both Eunice and Joy both learn not to judge their peers so harshly or unkindly. Eunice and Joy appeared in Springstubb's Which Way to the Nearest Wilderness? (Little, 1984), but readers need not have read it to enjoy this one. Eunice Gottlieb . . . is a funny and skillfully woven story of a friendship in the process of change. The characterizations are first-rate throughout, perfectly capturing the reality and trauma of being 12 years old. Denise A. Anton, Cornbelt Library System, Normal, Ill.
