Me in the Middle
(Groundwood Books March 15, 2002)
When ten-year-old Bel finds a photograph of her greatgrandmother Beatrice, or Bisa Bea, she convinces her mother to let her borrow it. When the picture inexplicably vanishes, Bisa Bea's voice suddenly emerges inside Bel, telling stories of the old days and counseling her on proper behavior by young girls. Then another voice emerges that tells her to be strong; this one belongs to her future granddaughter, and the key to how these voices came to live inside her lies in the lost photo of her greatgrandmother. This whimsical, witty novel shows how knowledge of the past can strengthen the wisdom of future generations. Author Ana Maria Machado won the 2000 Hans Christian Andersen Award.
