From School Library Journal
Grade 5-7 Sixth-grader Erica Yurkin, a.k.a. Erk, Yuk and Gherkin, knows that she will change her name once she leaves disadvantaged Barringa East Primary School and becomes an actress. She has always felt superior to everyone in her schooluntil redistricting brings beautiful, perfect and self-assured Alison Ashley to the sixth grade. Erica hates her from the very first. A series of events makes her realize that, although Alison has material things, her mother is never there for her, while Erica has the love and devotion of her family. The two become friends. Although peppered with Australian slang, Hating Alison Ashley is a solid school story with characters and situations to which American readers will relate.

Unbelievably, I managed to live the first thirty years of my life without ever reading this book. Since it is a classic of Australian children's literature, I thought I'd better read it before I give it out at the xmas fair. I'm not sorry I did. This was a great story of what it is like to be jealous of someone and embarrassed about your own family. Definitely worth the read.

Reserved for the xmas fair.
