Title: Emma-Jean Lazarus fell out of a tree / Lauren Tarshis.
Publisher: New York : Dial Books for Young Readers,2007
Annotation: A quirky and utterly logical seventh-grade girl named Emma-Jean
Lazarus discovers some interesting results when she gets involved in the messy
everyday problems of her peers.
Review: Emma Jean Lazarus fits the definition of strange. She is a girl separate
from the crowd. When confronted with Colleen (nice girl) Pomerantz sobbing at the sink,
Emma Jean steps in to solve problems and sets into motion an avalanche of events. A
charming novel filled with middle school personalities. Wonderfully written in a
fresh voice. In my top ten!
