My Rebel, My Love, Pocket Books (New York, NY), 1986. Madawaska, Worldwide (New York, NY), 1988. Sometimes, when we are in the midst of an exciting adventure, or in a long-dreamed-of place with magical meanings, my husband David will look at me and grin. You've come a long way for a little country girl," he says.

Book Description Her name was Amanda Jane Keeling, but from the time she was two, everyone called her Rebel. Rebel's first word was "No!". And it was downhill from there. As a toddler she resisted strained spinach and potty training. At five, she refused to go to kindergarten. Now at fourteen, she has toned down her rebellious streak somewhat, but whenever faced with a challenge she still feels the need to confront it head on, despite the opinions or advice of others.

Rebel is clearly checking Moses out in a big way, and their byplay is rather more interesting than the contrived plotline. The possibility of a European tour with both grandmothers and the teen duo leave readers open for sequels. Amanda Jane has been called Rebel since she was two. At 14 (and nearly six feet tall), she’s delighted to spend part of her summer in Seattle helping her unconventional Gram ready an old Victorian house for college-age boarders. Gram’s friend and partner in homesteading is Vi, who has brought along her grandson. He’s not only Rebel’s age, he’s 6 foot 6 and named Moses.

Her name was Amanda Jane Keeling, but from the time she was two, everyone called her Rebel. Rebel's first word was "No!" And it was downhill from there. As a toddler she resisted strained spinach and potty training. At five she refused to go to kindergarten. Now, at fourteen, she has toned down her rebellious streak somewhat, but whenever faced with a challenge, she still feels the need to confront it head on, despite the opinions or advice of others. When Rebel and her friend Moses -- the only boy she's ever met who can match her in both wit and height -- witness some strange goings-on, instead of going straight to the police, they decide to investigate the matters themselves. A bizarre robbery, an open door in the middle of the night, muddy footprints...all these clues lead Rebel and Moses to more questions than answers. But still they won't go for help. Little do they know the danger that waits them....

I picked this up at a thrift store to use in my classroom library and decided to read it before putting it in front of the kids. I had to abandon it due to the poor writing and awful treatment of the lead character. Half of the book is spent bemoaning how terrible it is to be tall and female, the other half is spent considering what traits are most desirable in a husband. The main character is 14 and her only ambition is to be married. After repeatedly stating that it's best for women to be "pretty and petite" there is a chance at redemption when the main male character, Moses, says that his tall uncle says you should marry a woman who you like, no matter what she looks like or how tall she is--only to then say that he went ahead and married a pretty and petite woman anyway, because obviously that's what all men want. Rebel gets her name for her free spirited nature and the first chapter sets her up as an adventurous risk-taker, until she meets Moses in chapter 2 and then it's all "He's tall, that would be good in a husband," "He likes dogs, that's a must in a husband," "Thank goodness I wore my cute jeans and t-shirt, I wouldn't want to look unkempt in front of this boy who is so tall and therefore marriageable" etc...

On top of that, Moses and Rebel are absurdly stupid. Moses is filming a deli when a man runs out of it and knocks an old lady down as he scrambles to flee. At no point do either of them think "maybe he robbed the store" which seemed an obvious conclusion. But it gets even more unbelievable. Three entire pages are spent with the deli owners going "we didn't a good look at the thief, should we call 911? Did anyone see what he looked like? Oh no, our descriptions conflict, too bad we don't know what he looked like" and at no point during any of this does Moses go "hey, I have a video camera in my hands and filmed the entire thing. In fact, the thief ran directly towards me filming--literally running into me AS I USED THE VIDEO CAMERA TO CAPTURE THIS ON FILM. Maybe we should LOOK AT THE VIDEO OR ANY OF THE PHOTOGRAPHS THAT I ALSO TOOK and see if there is an image of the thief so that we can report him to the police." Nor do any of the 5 other people standing there go "hey Moses, you have a video camera in your hands that is large enough to require two hands to operate properly. Did you perchance capture a picture of the thief?" I literally yelled at the book in frustration at the stupidity of it all. I don't mean "literally" figuratively. I shouted angry words out loud at fictional characters. It was that infuriating.

I love books and frequently exchange unwanted books for new books or donate them, but this one is going straight into the trash in hopes that no girl (or any other gender) ever reads this.

I personally thought that this book was a great mystery book. The main character in this book is Amanda Jane Keeling. But ever since she was two, her name was Rebel. For when she was just a little baby, and such a stubborn baby she was, she would scream and cry until she got what she wanted. This book begins when she has to go to her grandmother's house while her parents go to Europe. Along the way, she meets a boy who is actually taller than her (she is five foot eight). They together find counterfeit money, footprints, and a door open in the middle of the night, stolen money and a video camera, and they find their dog missing. This book is a great book if you like mysteries. This has been my favorite mystery book so far and I would definitely recommend it.

It was fun to read this book until it came time to finally solve the mystery. The kids risk their lives and the adult who knows what they're up to doesn't go to them to get them out of the situation. Then the book is over, just like that. The conclusion was unsatisfying and the kids won too easily.
