Grade 4-7-- Moving is never easy. It means a new school, new kids, and for Peggy, the youngest daughter of a minister, it means a new church. She learns a great deal about herself as she allows herself to become friends with George, the son of a refugee janitor, and with Sing, a Chinese gardener and caretaker. Peggy overcomes much of her shyness, making new, unexpected friends during the end of the school year and that summer as she and George enter a puppet competition. Plausible characters in real life situations carry this realistic novel. Although set in 1957, Ellis has captured universal fears and feelings not unique to any specific period. Although problems are introduced, they are almost secondary. This novel is as well paced and well told as Ellis' A Family Project (McElderry, 1988). --Maria B. Salvadore, District of Columbia Pub .
