Description
In this "artfully crafted" ("Publishers Weekly") companion to the bestselling "The Misfits" and "Totally Joe," Addie Carle confronts labels, loss, and what it means to grow up.
The Gang of Five is back in this third story from Paintbrush Falls. Addie Carle, the only girl in the group of friends is outspoken, opinionated, and sometimes...just a bit obnoxious.
But as seventh grade progresses, Addie's not so sure anymore about who she is. It seems her tough exterior is just a little too tough, and that doesn't help her deal with the turmoil she feels on the inside as she faces the pains of growing up.
Told in elegant, accessible verse, "Addie on the Inside" is a thought-provoking look at a strong, smart, and sensitive girl struggling with the box society wants to put her in. Addie confronts experiences we can relate to: the loss of a beloved pet, first heartbreak, teasing...but also, friendship, love, and a growing confidence in one's self.
