THE DREADFUL FUTURE OF BLOSSOM
New York : Dell, 1994.
IL 5-8 RL 5.6
: 1914. Blossom is the daughter of a gypsy with second sight. She is quite
a story teller. She involves herself in several escapades -- befriends
Daisy Mae who attends school in the john, helps old man Leverette get back
at Halloween pranksters, reads fortunes at Halloween haunted house and
brings up her teacher's sordid past and still finds time to travel to modern
time where she passes as a punk type in her 1914 beanie. The computer jock
she descends upon is a lonely type so in a touching moment she kisses him
and promises to hide her spelling bee pen somewhere in the china closet
in the old Leverette house where he will live in 1984. Great humor and
fast style, make this a good read.
