Kaye Gibbons. The Life All Around Me By Ellen Foster. New York: Harcourt, 2005.

Ellen Foster, returning eight years after the acclaimed novel in which she first appeared, is now fifteen and driven to succeed. She is an excellent student, a budding poet, and is applying for early admission to Harvard. Perhaps more important for readers, she is still a lively and distinctive narrator. This sequel finds Ellen returning to North Carolina and attending the State Fair in Raleigh.
