Feeling Sorry for Celia

By Jaclyn Moriarty

Go to catalog

This novel is a humorous look at Elizabeth Clarry's complicated life. It is written totally in letters: notes on the fridge between Elizabeth and her mom, letters to a stranger as part of her English teacher's attempt to have everyone re-discover the "Joy of the Envelope," and smirky little bits of conscience from groups like the COLD HARD TRUTH ASSOCIATION. Life is difficult enough, but to make things worse, Elizabeth's best friend, Celia, has run off to join the circus and left Elizabeth all alone to figure out guys and parents and ridiculous school assignments.
