About this title


Convinced that she doesn't have any of the things that matter, i.e. trendy clothes and a house in the country, Rosy Cole decides to form a club which will allow her rich friends to give her their surplus clothes, sports gear, and jewelry.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 3 - 6 Rosy falls victim to the notion that she is child of poverty, whereas she is poor only in comparison to a couple of ultra - rich private school classmates. She discovers that her friends don't value their material blessings as highly as she does, so she develops a scheme that plays upon the fleeting twinges of guilt they may feel about conspicuous consumption. She persuades them that they ought to unload their "guilt" by unloading their oversupplies of designer jeans, shirts and shoes on her willing shoulders. When her parents find out what she is up to, they are appalled. Rosy wakes up only when she realizes that her rich friends like her funky clothes better than their own trendy ones. This solution seems to beg the question a bit, but the subjects of greedy materialism and peer pressure are well handled. A light-handed treatment of a heavy subject that makes its point while also being funny. Greenwald's drawings are priceless in their economy of line and in their expression of Rosy's feelings. Ruth Semrau, Lovejoy School Library, McKinney, Tex.
