About the Author:

Bel Mooney made her name as a journalist, columnist, and broadcaster before writing fiction for adults and children. She is the author of a best-selling series of stories for young girls, including I Don't Want To! and So What, which were inspired by her own daughter, Kitty.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 5-8–A collection of stories by young adult writers from both sides of the Atlantic. The characters are all from middle- or upper-middle-class homes, there is little sense of alienation, and the mothers and daughters truly love one another. All the selections are told from the daughter's perspective, and many teenagers will see parts of themselves in the characters. Situations include adoption, girls manipulating their mothers, divorce, and terminal illness. Two pieces stand out. One is the title story about a girl trying to come to terms with her mother's death and her appearance as a ghost by the rather creative use of a cell phone. The other story concerns two cousins who dislike one another even though they have never met because they are constantly being compared by their respective mothers. When the girls do get together, their candor helps them quickly figure out what's been going on. A solid, enjoyable collection due to its breezy style and content.–Nancy P.
