With seven older brothers and a love of adventure, May Amelia Jackson just can't seem to abide her family's insistence that she behave like a Proper Young Lady. She's sure she could do better if only there were at least one other girl living along the banks of the Nasel River. And now that Mama's going to have a baby, maybe there's hope.Inspired by the diaries of her great-aunt, the real May Amelia, three-time Newbery Honor-winning author Jennifer Holm gives a beautifully crafted tale of one young girl whose unique spirit captures the courage, humour, passion and depth of the American pioneer experience.

    Unknown Binding (Scholastic, March 15, 2000)
    Outside the window the sky is black and the stars are winking at me. I watch the fireflies dancing in the field and realize my birthday is nearly over, and I haven't made my secret birthday wish yet. Mamma says that a wish made on a birthday always comes true. I don't know about that, though, Last year I wished for Kaarlo to stop being so mean to me all the time, but he's still the same mean old Kaarlo. Still, it can't hurt to try. I think hard but it's an easy wish. I can't tell anyone, not even Wilbert and he is my very best brother. I can't tell him because he'll never understand what it is like to be me, May Amelia Jackson, the only Jackson girl, and the only girl in Nasel. I squeeze my eyes tight and wish hard with my heart that Mamma has a little baby girl so that I can have a sister. I just made my birthday wish, I whisper, But Wilbert and Wendell aren't listening to me. They're too busy snoring.
