★ 美國紐伯瑞兒童文學金牌獎


Merci Suárez knew that sixth grade would be different, but she had no idea just how different. For starters, as strong and thoughtful as Merci is, she has never been completely like the other kids at her private school in Florida, because she and her older brother, Roli, are scholarship students.

They don’t have a big house or a fancy boat, and they have to do extra community service to make up for their free tuition. So when bossy Edna Santos sets her sights on the new boy who happens to be Merci’s school-assigned Sunshine Buddy, Merci becomes the target of Edna’s jealousy.

Things aren't going well at home, either: Merci’s grandfather and most trusted ally, Lolo, has been acting strangely lately — forgetting important things, falling from his bike, and getting angry over nothing. And Merci is left to her own worries, because no one in her family will tell her what's going on. Winner of the 2019 Newbery Medal, this coming-of-age tale by New York Times best-selling author Meg Medina gets to the heart of the confusion and constant change that defines middle school — and the steadfast connection that defines family.

 

梅西·蘇亞雷斯知道六年級會有所不同,但她不知道到底有何不同。就某方面而言,梅西堅強又體貼,她完全不像佛羅里達州私立學校其他孩子一樣,因為她和她的哥哥羅利是拿獎學金優秀學生。
 
他們沒有大房子或豪華船,他們必須提供額外的社區服務來彌補他們的免費學費。因此,當專橫的埃德娜·桑托斯喜歡一位陽光男孩,他卻恰好是學校分配給梅西的夥伴,於是梅西成為埃德娜嫉妒的目標。
 
家裡的情況也不佳:梅西的祖父和最值得信賴的盟友洛洛最近的行為舉止異常–時常忘記重要事情,從自行車上摔下來,無緣由生氣。梅西一無所知因為自顧不暇,也因為家人隱瞞她所發生的事情。《紐約時報》暢銷書作家梅格·麥迪納的這一成年傳奇故事獲得了2019年紐伯里獎章,撰述中學生的困惑和變化無常的心境,及家庭的緊密相繫。
