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.

Looking For Me

Review by lmreads

If you like poetry than this is a book for you! It is kinda sad at some parts, but at others it can be really happy. It is about a girl who has 11 other siblings and her life around it. Enjoy!

Hard to Follow

Review by SunshineDay

Looking for Me has good poetry and it's really cool that it's a more or less true story, but the story id sort of hard to follow and goes fast, one thing after another. The poetry was REALLY good though
