About the Author:

Lori Weber is the acclaimed author of several books for children and young adults, many of which focus on themes of alienation, friendship and family problems.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 6 Up—Penny and her friends have always taunted an eccentric old gypsy whom they call the Queen of Sheba. When a teacher assigns a history project, Penny interviews her grandmother, who tells her about her youth and about the Queen of Sheba, whom she once knew. When Penny's grandmother has a heart attack and dies, the woman comes to pay her respects. Soon after, she dies. Penny and a friend go to her apartment and discover that she had decorated eggs—hundreds of them. In the end, the teen comes to realize that this shy woman did not deserve their teasing. The novel's brevity leaves little room for much traditional character or plot development, but reluctant readers might find it just their cup of tea.—Catherine Ensley, Latah County Free Library District, Moscow, ID
