Description:

The fourteen-year-old narrator of In Zanesville is a late bloomer; a sidekick, a marching band dropout, a disastrous babysitter, the kind of girl whose Eureka moment is the discovery that 'fudge' can't be said with an English accent. Luckily, she has a best friend with whom she shares the everyday adventures of a 1970s American girlhood. In time, their friendship is tested - by their families' claims on them, by a clique of popular girls who stumble upon them, and by the first, startling, subversive intimations of womanhood. With dry wit and piercing observation, Jo Ann Beard shows us that in the seemingly quiet streets of America's innumerable Zanesvilles is a world of wonders, and that within the souls of the overlooked often burns something radiant.

Quotes:

[an] exuberant first novel...[Beard] has a knack for melding the funny and the sad, amplifying small moments into something big., The New York Times

...a fierce, funny, brave and bracingly honest new novel...a portrait of a sensitive young woman that is every bit as poignant and powerful as the Catcher in the Rye...essential and unforgettable..., The Chicago Tribune

Starred Review. Beard is a faultless chronicler of the young and hopeful; readers couldn't ask for a better guide for a trip through the wilds of adolescence., Publishers Weekly

One of the Top 10 Book Picks of the Year (2011)., People Magazine

One of the Best Books of 2011. Editor's Pick. ...Poignant...brilliantly captures a particular time and place...One of the book's greatest charms is its depiction of the narrator's intellectual awakening., eMusic
