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.

Review by Bookworm96

I really like poems, so I enjoyed this book. It had a lot of interesting characters, and for me a good book is one that makes me really feel what the people are feeling, which it did.

Review by Nloldolls

Awesome book so good. I really like how the poems were nice and short so if you needed to stop reading you could. But honestly its just a really awesome book!
