Don t call me katie rose
Dont Call Me Katie Rose by Lenora Mattingly WeberI always love book by Leona Mattingly Weber and this one does not disappoint. While there were times that I really wanted to give Katie Rose (excuse me, Kathleen) a really hard shake, I did love her and wanted things to work out for her. This is the first book Ive read of this particular series and now feel the need to go hunting to find the rest.
Whats even better is the cameo by Beany Malone. So nice to see her all grown up and happy!
What Leona always did so well with her heroines was done in this book again - she captured so perfectly the angst and uneasiness of growing up and fitting in. And always her characters end up the better for it, even as they fumble their way through life initially.
I think that one of the reasons why I have a large family now was due to reading Leonas books about large family units that work together and play together and love each other so openly.
So while this book might be a bit dated in some respects, I want to say that theres nothing dated at all about the emotions and the trials and the complications of family life portrayed. I recommend this to any young person struggling with who they are.

Katie Rose Belford is in her first year at Adams High. She is intent on being called Kathleen and takes on a sophisticated image in order to impress Bruce Seerie, a star athlete of Adams High. Does the pressure become too stressful? Beyond these series, Mrs. Weber wrote ten non-series books which are also captivating to readers of all ages. In both novels and short stories, Lenora Mattingly Weber introduces the reader to characters who become real life people. These characters take on lives of their own in the readers world - so much so that readers read and re-read the stories in order to maintain the relationship with these people.
