As soon as the snow melts I will go to Rass and fetch my mother. At Crisfield I'll board the ferry, climbing down into the cabin where the women always ride, but after forty minutes of sitting on the hard cabin bench, I'll stand up to peer out of the high forward windows, straining for the first sight of my island. (from the first line)
I was proud of my sister, but that year, something began to rankle beneath the pride.

Louise has had enough of her twin sister. Caroline is beautiful. Caroline is talented. Caroline is better. Growing up on the small island of Rass in Chesapeake Bay, Caroline seems to do nothing but take from Louise: their parents' love, Louise's chances for an education, her dreams for the future. They have spent their lives entwined -- sleeping in the same room, eating at the same table, learning in the same classroom -- and yet somehow nothing can bring them together. Louise's only hope lies in seeking a place for herself beyond the stretch of Rass's shores and her sister's shadow. What will it take for her to break free?

From the Publisher:
Feeling deprived all her life of schooling, friends, mother, and even her name by her twin sister, Louise finally begins to find her identity.

Annotation:
Louise hates her sister. Everyone is dazzled by her lovely, talented, and delicate twin, while the dark, brooding Louise--who prefers rough, outdoor work--struggles with her feelings of jealousy and inadequacy. Louise comes to accept her feelings when she is finally appreciated for herself, rather than compared to her sister. Winner of the 1981 Newbery Medal.
Author Bio
Katherine Paterson
Born to German-American missionary parents, Katherine Womeldorf moved frequently during her childhood. As an adult, she followed in her parents' footsteps and served as a missionary in Japan. She received a fellowship to study at Union Theological Seminary where she met her future husband, John Paterson, a Presbyterian minister. Her 1975 book, THE MASTER PUPPETEER, won the National Book Award. She wrote one of her best-known books, THE BRIDGE TO TERABITHIA, in response to the death of her son's best friend. It won the Newbery Medal in 1978. In 1981 she won her second Newbery Medal, this time for JACOB HAVE I LOVED.

Praise

1991 Newbery Committee (ALA)
"With wry humor, Sara Louise recalls her turbulent adolescence...Strength of characterization and memorable external and internal action mark this superbly crafted novel about a quest for self-knowledge."
