OF THE PEACOCK
York : Scribner, 1986.
Whitcom seems to be a typical teen type, but she has a problem -- she takes
all the news about war, bombs, hunger, and global warming, to heart. It
depresses her -- I mean it really depresses her. She wants to curl up in
a little ball and sleep all day. She didn't even notice her Mom served
sour cream with the tacos. It doesn't help that her best friend, Allie,
has just fallen in love and can talk forever on just one subject -- James
Brady. When she gets grounded and doesn't have authority to spend time
with either Allie or her buddy Paul, the prospects look pretty dismal.
But hope appears in the form of a famous sculptor who moves in to the old
estate nearby where she and Paul used to play castles in the gazebo. Roy,
the peacock is the catalyst that thrusts her into keeping her life in perspective.
Nuclear warfare -- Fiction.
Fear -- Fiction.
Friendship -- Fiction.
