About this product
- Description<b>In this artfully crafted (<i>Publishers Weekly</i>) companion to the bestselling <i>The Misfits</i> and <i>Totally Joe</i>, Addie Carle confronts labels, loss, and what it means to grow up.</b> 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 obxious.But as seventh grade progresses, Addie s t 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, <i>Addie on the Inside</i> 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.
