Inhaltsangabe: Twelve-year-old Megan's secure and comfortable world is suddenly threatened by the appearance of a half-sister, now twenty-four, to whom Megan's mother gave birth at seventeen and whom she then gave up for adoption. By the author of Pick-up Sticks.
From School Library Journal:
Grade 5-7?The shock not only comes out of the blue, but it also casts a blue haze over 12-year-old Megan's perfect life. When her mother announces that she has rediscovered the child she had at 17 and gave up for adoption, everyone but Megan seems thrilled. When Natalie, now a 24-year-old Ph.D student in astronomy, invites the family to be part of her wedding, Mom becomes crazed with catering plans, 5-year-old sister Betsy is excited at being a flower girl, and Dad is supportive. Megan struggles with her emotions, searching for a "sense of family and self" at their island cottage, which is filled with generations of memories and serves as a reflective backdrop. When she finds a Japanese fishing float, it becomes a symbol for her confused state and a resolution for her feelings. Finely crafted characterizations convey Megan's resentment, Betsy's precociousness, and Mom's preoccupation with melding present and past. Experience and emotion are interwoven in poignant descriptions like "she stayed inside herself like peanut butter in a jar." Another portrayal of a contemporary family forced to refocus, written by an author who is in touch with real life and relationships.?Julie Cummins, New York Public Library
