Looking for Me by Betsy R Rosenthal

4 stars
verse novel

So, I found this when I was looking for a new book by the same title by Beth Hoffman, because I so enjoyed Saving CeeCee Honeycutt.

Now, let me say there is NO RELATION between this Looking for Me and that one.

But I really really enjoyed this one.

(I still haven't read the other one.)

This great verse novel is a coming-of-age story about a girl during the depression.  It is, in fact, based on the author's mother.

A quick read, it'll make you laugh and cry, by turns.

Overall, recommended.
