Milly is an ordinary Vermont teen affected by immigrant Pablo's arrival in her high school in Julia Alvarez's Finding Miracles (0553494066, $6.50): as she comes to know him she's also forced to confront her own identity as an adopted girl from his native country, building a relationship which will bring her full circle back to her homeland--and the story of her birth. An excellent story of a girl's realization and changes evolves. Ann Brashares' Sisterhood Of The Traveling Pants (0440229-707, $6.99) offers new readers a vivid story of an ordinary pair of jeans and four friends who find themselves on the road to high adventure. Back the movie up with the adventure-filled novel and you'll create a reader for the summer.
