Annabel first sees him playing soccer near her house. His name is Esteban--she sees it on the back of his team shirt. He notices her, smiles, then looks back over his shoulder at her again.

It is the beginning of summer in the resort town of Seaview. It is also the start of a romance between a young Colombian who came to town to work and the daughter of a local contractor whose crews are entirely Latino--new immigrants who are changing the face of Seaview.

This is the summer of war in Iraq, and of Hurricane Katrina. But in Seaview there are other concerns. In Annabel's house her new boyfriend is at the top of the list. And Esteban's sister has harsh words for his choice of a girlfriend.

M. E. Kerr weaves a compelling story of star-crossed love and a small-town problem of nationwide significance.

Peligro, the sign said. Danger-- because the road that led up to the house twisted sharply around the hill.

One of the Hispanic workers had made the sign as the house was being prepared for its new owner. When Rosalind Slaymaster was finally ready to live there, everyone in the small Pennsylvanis town had come to call the place Peligro.

It was like Mrs. Slaymaster to leave it that way.

She was said to be the richest woman in Bucks County. When Edgar Tobbit first met her, he thought she didn't look rich, but it didn't take him very long to realize she wasn't like anyone else, either.

Neither was her teenage niece, Julie, who arrived at school every day in a white Hummer.

And neither was Peale, the two-foot leather mannequin who had his own wardrobe of tailor-made suits; his own passport, bedroom, and television.

Peale was said to grant wishes and make dreams come true.

"What's Peligro like?" Edgar's friend asks him. And Edgar invites him to a party there on Christmas Eve.

That is how Neal Kraft and Julie first meet.

The threesome quickly become fast friends and, in a short while, change one another's lives, barely aware of the old secrets that inspire Mrs. Slaymaster's revenge on the town.

Through it all Peale sits among them with his green glass eyes bright and watchful, as though he knows what's coming.

What Became of Her is partly based on some real-life characters the author has never been able to forget.

Friends, I have to speak up and oppose this praise for a conchie, even though he is my own blood. I may love Bud Shoemaker, but I don't admire him any longer. How can I if he won't pull his weight in this war? How can you be pacifists with a madman like Hitler ready to rule the world? I want to say to you all, Wake up!

Everyone in Sweet Creek knows about Bud Shoemaker. Nothing is secret for long in that small Pennsylvania town. Bud has been asked not to lead his Boy Scout troop anymore. When he drives up at the Texaco station in his old Ford, the help take their time coming out to pump gas.

A lot of regular customers aren't buying at his family's department store, either. And a lot of the Shoemakers' friends are no longer that friendly.

Jubal Shoemaker, fourteen, finds himself being treated differently too.

One day the girl of his dreams, Daria Daniel, tells him that her father "doesn't think it's good for me to be around you people too much."

"You mean the Shoemakers? Is that what you mean?"

Bud has changed things, Jubal. A lot of people don't like what he's done. It's not just us!"

Instead of joining the armed forces with all the other young men in town, Bud Shoemaker chose to be a conscientious objector, abiding by his family's Quaker beliefs. Now Jubal, who has always idolized his brother and wanted to be like him, suddenly wonders if he can be -- if he even wants to be like him -- when Bud's decision seems to be tearing their family apart.

These 15 short stories by a writer the New York Times Book Review has called "one of the grand masters of young adult fiction" capture our fears, yearnings, loneliness, self-doubts, and universal need for love and acceptance M.

Though to Brenda Belle Blossom's mother he is just "that boy . . . tying those beer cans to the Christmas tree," sixteen-year-old Adam is really the son of a famous movie star who hobnobs with royalty while jetting all over the world. Smarty Brenda Belle Blossom, horrified by fuzz on her upper lip, cracks jokes to avoid the bummer of her teeny Vermont hamlet and ladylike mother. When Adam is expelled from his last boarding school, he washes up in Vermont to stay with his irascible, alcoholic grandfather, and meets Belle at the drug store. Soon they are going steady, calling each other "darling," and dedicated to helping other misfits achieve "Nothing Power"--until Brenda realizes there's more to the "ordinary" Adam than it seems.

M.E. Kerr is the winner of the 1993 Margaret Edwards Award for her lifetime achievement in writing books for young adults. She has been described by the "New York Times Book Review" as "one of the grand masters of young adult fiction." She lives in Long Island, New York.
