Laurie Halse Anderson has created a character, Melinda Sordino, who shall live in my heart for a very long time. Melinda's smart and funny, disturbing and yet an absolute delight. It's a book not only for young adults but for anyone who's ever been to high school and felt like a neverwas, neveris and never will be. The reader will most assuredly care deeply about this plucky young girl. Melinda Sordino can sit at my table anytime.
