Synopsis

Lotty, the fourth child in the McDaniel family, is a good girl. "Good as in boring," her older brothers say. But it's hard to be good, and Lotty is sick and tired of trying. So Lotty the good becomes Lotty the bad--in a very quiet and unusual way. Just the kind of true-to-life story middle-graders will love. "Entertaining!"--School Library Journal.

Lotty's dreams aren't really bad, just the normal ones of fear or revenge that any nine-year-old might spin to compensate for everyday disappointments.

As if being the paragon in a family with three teenaged brothers isn't burdensome enough, this heroine's classmates form an ``I Hate Lotty'' club--drastic measures may be in order in this comically realistic look at growing up.
