The Private Notebook of Katie Roberts, Age 11, Volume 478
Katie's father died in World War II, and four years later her mother has married Sam Gold and taken her away from New York City to a ranch in Texas. Amy Hest, author of the acclaimed novel LOVE YOU, SOLDIER that featured Katie at age seven, has written a new story in the intimate form of Katie's diary, letters, and drawings. With perfect pitch for the fears and hopes of an 11-year-old, this funny, poignant novel sings of a young girl's longing to fit into a new life without forgetting the old.
