I read this book as a child and I still remember how much I loved it...which is saying a lot since I am now 32! I read it several times and enjoyed it each time. My fourth grade teacher gave the book to me as a Christmas gift and I couldn't have asked for a better present. I recommend this for children ages 10 and up...it is a story you will remember.

3 of 5 people found the following review helpful By BeatleBangs1964 TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on February 13, 2002
Format: Paperback
Cathy, an 11-year-old teetering on the brink of the "terrible teens" has learned to juggle some issues. She tilts at windmills and looks for excuses to rebel, such as insisting on riding a bike on the sidewalk instead of in the park. She has a loving father, stepmother and stepbrother who is a year her senior. Her biggest ally is her paternal grandmother, who is a very astute woman.

Cathy is very silly and infantile, even for eleven. She believes that her mother is dead and has no memory of her. Every year she leaves Manhattan for the bucolic tranquility of rural Maine, the home of her grandmother. In Maine she reconnects with her boy-crazy, irritating, not too bright friend Marianne. Marianne is really for the birds.

Once ensconsed in Maine, Cathy meets a woman summering there. The woman has rented a cottage and asked Cathy if she would pose as a model for a children's book she is illustrating. Cathy jumps at the chance to model and earn money for a bicycle she wants to buy.

The summer appears to drift along up to a point. Cathy's stepbrother Andrew and his delinquent friend Donny arrive towards the latter part of the summer. Marianne hooks up with Donny and entices the other two to eavesdrop on an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting. It is there, in the darkness of a church parish hall that Cathy recognizes the woman she thought was just a summer resident in Maine. Masks come off and the results are...well, somewhat of a revelation.

It is Cathy's wise grandmother who puts the pieces together for them all. She was the most appealing character. I like the intelligent conversations she had with her spoiled, silly and very immature granddaughter.
