THE GIRL IN THE WELL IS ME, by Karen Rivers

The story: Wanting desperately to get in with the popular girls in her new school, Kammie agrees to do the “initiation” into the Kandy/Mandy/Sandy club–only to find herself falling through the rotten boards on top of an abandoned well, stuck there when the other girls run off. Her time in the well, spent thinking about her difficult life and the events that brought her here, helps her realize what things are the most important, and which ones are just clutter. Problem is–will she ever get out of here so she can put her new plans into action? Not if that French-speaking goat has anything to say about it.

The library lady says: Kids will find themselves rooting for Kammie–even boys!
