KIRKUS REVIEW

... but before that it was tomboyish and thirteen. This is a year of changes and adjustments for Rusty Eastman -- from grade school to high school, from despairing over kinky red hair to enjoying admiration over her wavy locks, from despising the ""chirps"" who giggled about boys to dating Sammy Jones --accentuated by her discovery that her made-up suspicions of being adopted were actually true. As she becomes reconciled to this knowledge and again recognizes her family's affection for her, she is able to understand that her adored elder brother also has feelings of inadequacy. A little bit too much of Rusty's girlish emoting, but otherwise a sturdy and solid book of its type.
