Author Bio: Betty Miles is the author of thirty books for children, among them picture books, easy-to-read books, nonfiction about the environment and HEY! I'M READING!, a book about reading for beginners and their families. Her nine novels for middle school-aged readers have won awards and praise for their humor and understanding. Book description: Barbara Fisher just wants to be ordinary. She certainly doesn't want to be called a nut. But what's going on? Every time she tries to do something interesting, like sign up for tennis class or take over her brother's paper route, it turns out to be for boys only. So she has to speak up.And that, in this first-ever feminist novel for young readers, turns out to mean trouble.
