About this title

Synopsis:

Fitzi longs for a "normal" life instead of one where she moves from place to place and performs in various acts with her parents.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 5-7-- Fitzi Wolper, about ten, belongs to a New York show-business family that is never able to put down roots. She had always liked being part of a mime act with her parents, but now she is embarrassed to be a street performer. She wants desperately to be a normal kid going to a normal school. With her grandfather's support, she achieves at least part of her goals, and at the same time realizes that performing will always have a place in her life. The ending is pat, but the plot moves smoothly, propelled by the well-developed main characters. When a stroke forces her grandfather to face a life without stage lights, it also allows him a better understanding of Fitzi's discontent. Her parents, buoyed and sustained by their careers, are one-dimensional, albeit loving and caring, but the more complex viewpoints of other characters help Fitzi toward the resolution of her own problems. She in turn becomes more sensitive toward and understanding of the needs of others. Readers who are intrigued by this seemingly glamorous profession will be especially interested in this view from the inside. --Tatiana Castleton, Stockton-San Joaquin County Public Library, CA
