JoEllen is a girl with two names, two houses, two sets of friends, and really, two different lives. In the city, where she lives with her mom, she's Ellen--a girl who plays the sax, hangs out with her girlfriends and goes to movies. 42 miles away, in the country, she's Joey--a girl who loves to ride horses with her cousin and listens to bluegrass. What could a girl with two lives want for her upcoming thirteenth birthday? To join her two lives into one, to be JoEllen! How will it be possible to span the miles and the differences? Read this story told in a series of linked free verse poems, illustrated like a scrapbook to find out! Absolutely one of my all time favorites--loved the beautiful poetry, loved JoEllen's story.
