From School Library Journal:

Grade 5-7 When 11-year-old Phoebe returns from camp, she expects her whole family to be there to welcome her home. However, her family and friends seem preoccupied with other concerns. Her mother has taken a job, and her sisters are wrapped up in their own lives. Worst of all, Fee's friends have become immersed in make-up, clothes, and boys. Seeking refuge, Fee becomes a library helper, only to be plunged into a book-banning dispute. Explaining the negative effect of censorship on young readers is the most important thing this book does. Unfortunately, plot unity is threatened by superficial examination of too many characters' concerns. Perhaps this is to allow Phoebe to be a springboard for the following books in the series, but it serves this book poorly. Dialogue is unrealistic and the denouement too pat. Consider for purchase for the paperback rack only because of the interest that the censorship issue might have to preteens. Cindy Darling Codell, Belmont Junior High Schol, Winchester, Ky.
