9781434305145: Get A Little Lost, Tia (Revised 2007 Edition)

Seventeen-year-old Jason Hilliard plays a dual role since his father's death and his mother's return to work. Along with handling his own problems as a teenager, he also must deal with the roller-coaster emotions of his thirteen-year-old sister, Tia. Jason is attracted to Celia Miramontes, a seventeen-year-old with close family ties in the Latin community. With mixed feelings, Jason sees Celia taking time she otherwise would spend with him to help his little sister through a series of problems. Will it always be the two of us and Tia, he wonders. Couldn't she just get a little lost now and then? But when Tia actually does get lost in the mountains, while on a picnic with Celia's family, Jason moans, "That wasn't what I meant when I said to get a little lost, Tia!" This is a smoothly written, entertaining novel of family life and the gentle blossoming of first love.-School Library Journal This is an easy-to-read school story which has sprightly, up-to-the-minute conversation carrying it briskly along. With his widowed mother now working, Jason has had to take on the additional responsibility of his thirteen-year-old sister, Tia. Problems with Tia erupt regularly, as Jason tries to cope with her as well as with his own maturing and his first real girl friend. Positive family relationships are portrayed.-Children's Book Review Service, Inc. Jason, an exasperated but loyal brother, and his generous and understanding girl friend join forces to help an immature younger sister grow up. Still Jason often wishes Celia would pay less attention to his sister and more to him. Tia, in his view, should "get a little lost." When she does, Jason is heartsick. This is an amusing story, especially for sorely tried older siblings.-The Bookfinder

About the Author:

Phyllis Anderson Wood, winner of the Church and Synagogue Library Association's award for "significant contribution to children's literature," is the author of thirteen young adult novels, which have been popular since 1971 in schools and libraries throughout the U.S., Canada, England, Australia, and New Zealand. Three of the titles were Junior Literary Guild selections. Now these books, newly revised by the author, are back in print for a new generation of young readers. These novels were written during Mrs. Wood's years of teaching in the Jefferson High School District just outside of San Francisco. Her students' daily lives and problems were reflected in her stories, and their reactions to her books strongly influenced the course of her writing. Altogether, Mrs. Wood taught for thirty years in California public schools, including a two-room mountain high school, an inner-city junior high, a continuation school, adult school, and several large rural and suburban high schools. Over the years, she also supervised and mentored thirteen teaching interns from the Stanford University School of Education, conducted in-service workshops throughout the United States, and spoke at many national conventions. More information can be found on her website, www.phyllisandersonwood.com.
