Hands Around Lincoln School

by Frank Asch

Amy, a shy sixth grader, is frequently caught up in the escapades of her mercurial best friend, so when Lindsay decides to form a Save the Earth Club at school, Amy goes along with the plan. They enlist the participation of the '60s-obsessed twins, Ruth and Heather, and find a teacher to be their advisor. They meet moderate success with a project to hold classroom discussions on Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes, and ultimately triumph when their skit, a mock TV-talk show demonstrating the negative effects of war toys and violent video games, wins the school talent contest. Things begin to unravel when Lindsay is suspended for supposedly spray painting the school's front door; she quits the club and disappears. All is resolved as the students join hands around the school to celebrate Earth Day. While there is a lot happening here to both interest and involve readers, some of the situations and dialogue do not ring true. Ms. Peterson's insistence that the club limit its membership to the four girls, and TV coverage of the school's Earth Day event when a student has ostensibly disappeared the previous day are hard to believe. Amy's brother, who calls himself The Avenger, is truly a mean-spirited child, and Lindsay's serious emotional problems are glossed over. Readers will, however, recognize the power of peer pressure, the need to belong, the beginnings of romance, and the importance of Amy's ability to overcome her shyness and defend her rights.
