~F.A.Q. from author Bette Greene~
Q.In the first book, “Philip Hall Likes Me. I Reckon Maybe.” Beth wins Wins WINS everything, and so when we get to the second book of the series, “Get On Out of Here, Philip Hall”, she gets really stuck up. Jennifer writes asking why didn’t her mother tell her that she’s just too busy thinking that she’s just so great. So how come her mother didn’t tell her? so that she could just stop being that way?
A. Jennifer thank you for your letter, but the problem was that Beth just wasn’t— just wouldn’t listen. It was her public humiliation that started her thinking— learning that she had done wrong and maybe she could be better.
Q. Did Beth Lambert change for the better when she was with her grandmother?
A. Her grandmother loves Beth, but she didn’t like her stuck-up attitude and grandmother helped Beth be better.
