York : Knopf, 1983
Pinkerton would like to believe that names will never hurt you but she
feels hurt every time she hears the kids calling her Beanpole. She started
growing in first grade and hasn't stopped since. Now thirteen, she seems
to tower over everyone. Her friends, Drew and Belinda, tell her not to
worry about her height but its hard. When a boy asks Lillian to dance at
the Christmas dance, she begins to feel that everything will be OK. That
is until she finds out that another boy bet him $5.00 to dance with her.
Lillian is so depressed. Will she figure out that what is inside is more
important than what is on the outside? Read BEANPOLE to find out.
