Seventeen-year-old Emily Morawski goes to a third-rate high school in a downbeat town in western Massachusetts. She is part of a tough, loyal Polish-American family. Because she is slender, Emily is asked to let herself be lowered head-first down a forty-foot well to rescue Sophie Bourassa. That deed makes her an instant hero, a media personality who receives a call from President Reagan. It also changes everything in her life.
...rich with a multitude of issues such as loyalty and independence, and much better than a problem novel. Tense action scenes provide good booktalk material.
