What I Saw and How I Lied, Judy Blundell, (Scholastic)

Fifteen-year-old Evie, doesn’t think of herself as beautiful. Not like her mother who could double for Lana Turner. Evie is anxious for the days when her curves will appear and she can as they say, “fill in a sweater.” Evie’s voice is sharp and crisp as we experience her confusion and discovery in this lyrical coming-of-age story set in the post WWII era.
