Editorial Reviews

Review

“A genuinely moving tale about the necessity to reach out to others, even when it's difficult” – Kirkus Reviews

* “Honest and moving . . . Preteens will relate to Belle Teal, whose observations provide an eye-popping introduction to social and personal injustice.” – Publishers Weekly, starred review

“You will love Belle, her mom, and Gran. This family of women knows how to raise a young one to stand up for what's right.” – Book Sense Children's 76 Picks

“Considerable child appeal and heart . . . a solid piece of work with an absorbing plot.” – SLJ

“With the same sincere and empathetic handling of grade-school life that made her Baby-sitters Club books so popular, Martin here deftly draws a more complicated portrait of a racially integrating fifth-grade class . . . The writing is graceful and easy, with Belle Teal's narration distinctly and convincingly evoked.” – The Horn Book

This story is about a girl named Belle Teal. It's the first day of school. They are having new kids come to the school. The adults don't like it. The new students are colored. Belle teal and her friend Clarice are starting the 5th grade. They are very excited because they get to be in Ms. Casey's class. She gets on the bus. She sees a girl she has never seen before; People call her "Her Royal Highness", HRH for short. She doesn't like Belle teal that much. They get of the bus, She

Sees mad parents holding up signs in front of the school. They rush to the classroom. She notices a boy sitting down in the front row right in front of Ms. Casey's desk. His name is Darryl. Well all the other students think Darryl is just mean, different, and doesn't talk to anybody. That's what they think, but they're wrong. One day Clarice doesn't come to school. Belle Teal is on her way to lunch. She doesn't have anybody to sit with. She notices that Darryl is sitting alone. She decides to go eat lunch with him. They start to talk; they are now very good friends. People on the other hand think she is just gone completely out of her mind. Belle teal, Darryl, and Clarice are all very good friends now. Well one day Little Boss doesn't come to school, but Chas and Vernon told Belle teal and Clarice that Darryl shot Little Boss in the leg. Belle teal asked Darryl if he did it. But he said he didn't, he was at home all day, his dad was there with him, and the preacher stopped by to see if everything was going ok and for a little chat. The Christmas program was coming up in a couple of weeks. Belle teal is playing Mary. There first dress rehearsal is Wednesday. It goes smoothly, but Chas and Vernon still keep pushing Darryl around. It's the night of the pageant. The pageant went very well.

Ann M.Martin did a great job on this book.Belle Teal is a very strong character.

Belle Teal,is starting school(again)but new wonders await her,there is a new African American student in her class,which no one talks to she is a very brave person and is the only one to talk to him.Later she befriends him,but her friend Little Boss(something like that)doesn't like him.One day Little Boss dad says a horrifing lie which causes more people to hate the African American boy(I don't remember his name)Other than that Belle Teal has much more problems her grandma losing her memory,snobby girls,and now having Little Boss dad lie was more hurtful to her.She convinced Little Boss to say the truth he promised her he would,he never did though,he moved away far.In a summer many things happened to her sad,happy,nice, and much more feelings.I really admire the way the author made a character who is realistic and people can say she is someone with many,many diginity in her.

I would recomend this book.

-Ana 11 year old.

This is a wonderful young adult novel by Ms. Martin. Belle Teal is a thought-provoking and beautifully told story of one child's experience with desegregation. Belle is a strong female character who gracefully stands up for herself and her beliefs; a terrific role model for girls (and boys) learning to navigate a larger world in which people don't always agree.
