Edith learns who she is and who she wants to be

Review by Rebecca

Looking For Me... in this great big family is a good book for kids about nine years old. It is about a girl named Edith who is one of 12 kids in a Jewish family in Depression-era Baltimore. Edith is struggling to find her place in the world among her brothers and sisters. She has to go through a lot of hard times before she can figure it out. Slowly but surely, she learns who she is and who she wants to be. This book is fairly short and focuses on small details a lot of the time.

Good Book!

Review by EmmaRuth

This book was written in verse. It's very interesting- it shows what life would be like during the Depression. It can also be sad in some parts, so I would not recommend reading this if you don't like books like that. It's about self-realization and figuring out who you want to be. Overall, I think it was a pretty good book!
