Introducing Clare Connelly! You’ve heard of Clare Connelly, right? Clare Connelly, the figure skating champion. Clare Connelly, the world-renowned spy. Clare Connelly, the doctor ... the actress ... the cowgirl. Clare Connelly, the twelve-year-old. Clare Connelly lives in a bed-and-breakfast inn with her divorced mother, her sister, and her very vivid imagination. On the shores of the Chesapeake Bay in Annapolis, Maryland, she dreams of a more exciting life where she races sailboats, rides horses, and wins fame and fortune. As Clare sees guests come and go at the inn, she realizes just how dull her life really is. She confides to her best friend, Ginny, “Did you ever wish that the Earth was being invaded by aliens from outer space and it was up to you to save the world?” But when Clare auditions for the middle school play, she may discover that excitement and adventure are not all they are cracked up to be.

Review:

"Clare Connelly is much like many middle schoolers. She worries about where she fits into the school's social hierarchy, becomes aghast over the perceived size of her nose and frets about being seen around town with her dad on a Friday night. But Clare also has something that many kids her age do not: an active - almost hyperactive - imagination. When faced with uncomfortable, boring or challenging circumstances, she retreats into a fantasy world that helps her cope and gives her strength. ... the book will appeal especially to those living in the area because it takes place in Annapolis. Tweens will delight in the mention of the Naval Academy and Blue Angels, the Annapolis Mall and the Chesapeake Bay. More important, they can learn a few tricks from Clare about navigating the hazards of middle school as she learns to have faith in herself, to stand up for what she believes in, and to reconcile a broken friendship." --Nina Fisher, Chesapeake Family magazine, March 2009
