Annotation:
Junior high school student Marcy has problems--she's overweight, can't communicate with her parents, and has no social life. When new teacher Ms. Finney comes along, Marcy is inspired. When Ms. Finney is fired from the school because of her liberal ideas, Marcy becomes involved in a protest to keep her hired, and suddenly her life becomes full of promise. The second book about Marcy is "There's a Bat in Bunk Five".
Author Bio
Paula Danziger
Paula Danziger became an author as the result of two car accidents. The first accident was relatively mild, but several days later, while driving to a doctor's appointment, she was hit head-on by a drunk driver. This accident resulted in temporary brain damage that left her unable to read for some time. In an effort to overcome the powerlessness she felt as a patient working to overcome her injuries, Danziger turned to writing a novel about a teenage girl who suffers from low self-esteem and family troubles--THE CAT ATE MY GYMSUIT, which is still one of her most popular works. Danziger was also encouraged to become a writer by her mentor, the poet John Ciardi, for whom she worked as a babysitter while attending Montclair State College. Prior to becoming a full-time writer, Danziger worked for the New Jersey school system both as a substitute and full-time teacher.
