About this title:

Synopsis: It's only been a couple of months since Delrita lost both her parents, and living with Uncle Bert and prissy Aunt Queenie isn't easy. Aunt Queenie's cantankerous father, Sergeant Roebuck, seems to resent Delrita's very existence. It's not until a class project forces Delrita to spend time with the Sergeant that she begins to realize that sometimes people aren't what they seem-and Sergeant Roebuck may be exactly who she needs.

"[An] engrossing, energetic sequel to The Man Who Loved Clowns." (Kirkus Reviews)

"This engaging story . . . is about coping with grief and accepting change, and those readers who become attached to Delrita in the first book will find plenty to enjoy here." (School Library Journal)

From School Library Journal: Grade 5-8. In The Man Who Loved Clowns (Putnam, 1992), Delrita's world was turned upside down by the death of her parents in a car accident and shortly thereafter by the loss of Punky, her beloved uncle with Down's syndrome. Now, she is beginning to reach up and out. Continuing to live with her Aunt Queenie and Uncle Bert, the young teen wonders if she will ever feel truly loved and part of a family again. In addition, Queenie's cantankerous father has moved in with them and he exasperates his daughter and intimidates Delrita. She slowly reaches out to others, especially Joey, a Down's syndrome adult living in a nursing home with his mother, and becomes his "teen buddy." It's harder to reach out to Queenie's father and to Heidi, the new girl whose family has moved into Delrita's family's old home. There is a lot going on here, including Delrita's suffering from the pangs of puppy love for a neighbor, Tree. Less believable than most of the characters, he is too good to be true. Everything is tied up in the end and the offstage solution to the local robberies plus the revealing of Heidi's secrets just pile on. In spite of having slightly too many threads, this engaging story is one of a very few that shows average kids interacting enjoyably with special-needs adults without that being the focus of the story. This novel is about coping with grief and accepting change, and those readers who became attached to Delitra in the first book will find plenty to enjoy here.?Carol A.
