    Many of my students love Peg Kehret books because they move quickly and keep their attention. These are perfect for those readers who need a little push to get going.

    This story is about a 13 year-old girl who is just normal, goes to school, hangs out with her friends, you know all that fun stuff. Well on her 13th birthday her whole family went to a restaurant for lunch and while they were there Ginger felt as if someone was watching her and sure enough someone was... these feelings kept on going on for along time until the person who was watching her finally confronted her. Even after the crazy lady confronted her Ginger had every right to be very nervous...

Even after the crazy lady confronted her Ginger had every right to be very nervous....... The characters of this story are Ginger, Karie, Tipper, Laura, Mom and Dad, Joyce (crazy lady), Mr. and Mrs. Wren, Dana, Joe, and Mrs. Vaughn. The main plot of this story is either at school or at Ginger’s house. I really, really, really, really liked this book because of it’s suspense. Like I have said in other book reviews this book had so much suspense. You could never just stop on a page, you HAD AND I MEAN HAD TO, read the next page. I finished this book in probably an hour and a half. When I had to stop to take a break to eat, it KILLLED me! This is probably one of the BEST book i have ever read, along with all of the other Peg Kehret books. There was nothing that I really dis- liked about this book. The fact that I had to stop and eat lunch kind of annoyed me but, other than that, this book had no faults or errors, in other words IMPECCABLE!

I'm Not Who You Think I Am is about a 13 year old girl named Ginger who is stalked by an old lady who thinks Ginger is her long lost daughter. The plot in this book is so simple, it should have been made for children as young as 5. I think this book is way to simple for even a 5th grader. I would recommend this book to children in 3rd grade or younger, because it is more of a "first chapter book" type of book.

    Ginger finds herself being followed by a mysterious woman who claims she is her mother and that she was taken away from her. Ginger,seeing the similarities between this woman and herself begins to question her identity. Was her life an entire life the whole time? This book made me realize how having an identity is really important. It is what defines a person and how we can tell each other apart. That's why I believe we should all keep our name,instead of changing them if we don't like them.

    I first heard of the book I’m not who you think I am by Peg Kehret because it was in the library. This book was similar to Taken that was a good book too. We read Taken last year in my Language Arts class at Kelly Middle School. Taken is different from I’m not who you think I am because in Taken the girl actually girl actually got kidnapped but in I’m not who you think I am Ginger was being stalked. Both books are a good decision to read but Taken is confusing at the end. Ginger was in a restaur I first heard of the book I’m not who you think I am by Peg Kehret because it was in the library. This book was similar to Taken that was a good book too. We read Taken last year in my Language Arts class at Kelly Middle School. Taken is different from I’m not who you think I am because in Taken the girl actually girl actually got kidnapped but in I’m not who you think I am Ginger was being stalked. Both books are a good decision to read but Taken is confusing at the end. Ginger was in a restaurant eating lunch with her family for her birthday. Ginger was feeling watched and every time she turned around she saw this lady watching her. The restaurant sang happy birthday to Ginger. At the end of this stranger named Joyce Gallo walked up to Ginger and said Happy Birthday Ginger and picked up a business card and left. Ginger was thinking really hard about how that lady knew her name and how strange that was. Ginger remembered when the restaurant sang the song with her name in it. When Ginger was leaving the restaurant she saw Joyce standing on the side of the wall with a piece of paper and a pen writing something. She got concerned bud didn’t say anything because she didn’t want to seem crazy on her birthday. One day Ginger saw the white car with a yellow ribbon tied to the antenna parked across the street from her house and felt like she was being watched. The lady called Ginger house and didn’t leave her name just a message. Ginger found that strange. Then the lady calls again and asks what time Ginger gets out of school and her little brother tells her. After school Ginger records the girl basketball team practices. Ginger is the only one in her family that is interested in being a sports announcer. Instenad of her family buying her new tapes she deletes the older practices and re records over them. After practices she would see the white car waiting for her outside her school. When she got home she told her sister Laura. Laura didn’t think it was a big deal. So Ginger kept doing her same routine. Joyce asked Ginger if they could talk and Ginger said no. Joyce knew where Ginger lived and her name why doesn’t she just call to talk to Ginger on the phone. One morning Joyce waited on Ginger at her bus stop. Joyce asked if she can meet her after school to talk. Ginger said no just say it now. Joyce said I’m your mother then Ginger walked on the bus at sat by Katie like normally. Katie asked Ginger was she ok. Ginger said she will tell her later. At lunch Ginger whispered to Katie what happened. Katie said you should call your parents and tell them. Ginger said no because she wants them to do what they were looking forward to do for months and because it was only three more days before her parents got home. Ginger was wondering if she should go ask what the lady meant this afternoon. Katie said I wouldn’t do that if I was you. Ginger asked but Katie gave her a signal to use if she needs help. After school Ginger talked to Joyce and she said I’m your mother and your father died before you were born and he never knew I was pregnant. I had to give you away. Ginger said I don’t believe you. Joyce got mad and said when you get home look in the mirror and you will see me. Ginger went home and looked at her scrapbook, birth certificate, and talked to her mom. Joyce was lying. So Ginger went to Joyce the next day and said I wasn’t adopted. Joyce thinks that certain kids are her children because she didn’t believe her newborn died and she was in a psychiatric hospital. Also Joyce was wanted for abortion three years before she saw Ginger. When Ginger was going to the hearing to help Mr. Wren keep his job Joyce and Arnold tried to kidnap her. They said they had her little brother Tipper. Ginger said at six o’ clock she had a hearing so her favorite teacher won’t lose his job then I will go with you. The man watched her so she don’t try to get help. Katie came during Ginger’s presentation and Giver gave Katie the signal for help. Katie called the Police and told them what happened. Joyce and Arnold are in custody of the Police without bail. Ginger told her parents after she left the police station. Ginger and the suspects also Mrs. Vaughn was in the newspaper. Mrs. Vaughn tried to fire Mr. Wren under force of her company. Mrs. Thomas stayed with Laura and Ginger until Sunday. Tipper wasn’t kidnapped and came home. Tipper said why didn’t you tell me you were being spied on? I would give this book rate of five stars because it’s in good detail and it doesn’t leave you puzzled. I thought this book was good to read if you like mysteries. I would recommend this book to middle schoolers and high schoolers. This book always had me thinking about what would happen next. All mysteries aren’t long books so look into reading some one day.

    4/29/13 I am currently reading I'm Not Who You Think I Am by Peg Kehret. In this book one of the most interesting characters in the book has the name of Ginger. Ginger is a 13 year old who gets along with everyone--her sister, brother, friends, parents, and so on. She is sometimes just a little too nice. But being too nice finally takes action. Ginger has one main problem in the book, which is an old lady that follows her around wherever she goes and claims that Ginger is her daughter. At first, 4/29/13 I am currently reading I'm Not Who You Think I Am by Peg Kehret. In this book one of the most interesting characters in the book has the name of Ginger. Ginger is a 13 year old who gets along with everyone--her sister, brother, friends, parents, and so on. She is sometimes just a little too nice. But being too nice finally takes action. Ginger has one main problem in the book, which is an old lady that follows her around wherever she goes and claims that Ginger is her daughter. At first, when Ginger found out, she didn't do anything. She didn't tell ANYONE, not even her parents. I would've reacted differently. I would've told my parents right away. But Ginger is such a brave 13 year old girl, she wanted to figure it out all by herself. In the book this lady starts to claim that she's her mother and Ginger keeps talking to her instead of just running away. Again I would've ran instead of kept talking to this strange lady. Ginger is so independent in this book because she wants to know who this women is all by herself, but sometimes, in my opinion, she doesn't make the right choices. Ginger is very brave in this book because she tries to figure out who this women really is and if she's maybe not lying about being her mother. Ginger starts to get strange suspicions and takes very accurate notes on who this women really is, what her car looks like, and other specific notes. In that part of the story she is very smart because she identifies the person instead of just ignoring her. I still think Ginger should've told someone about this lady, but she is very mature for her age and handles it well. Not telling anyone about this lady makes the book very interesting instead of doing what I might have done if that would've happened to me.

And when the woman's confrontations become threatening, Ginger is forced into a crisis from which her family might never recover from. If you changed the setting it would make some sence but not that much really also when this all happend only her friend katie knew about the lady following her but her sister and her parents didn't know either untill they get home from there trips. There are two quotes that i liked heres one "i'm not getting in the car!"-pg.121. Also there was "I'm not who you think i am"-Front Cover. I would recomend this book to anybody but the only reason that like around the age 8-9ish not to read it is because it talks about kidnapping and you dont want them being all paronid. I like this book because it was made or written in 1999 a year after i was born. But when you get to the end of the book you find out that the lady that was following her was a little crazy in the head and thought that she was her daughter and she had done that before to another girl that was same age the police took her away with the man she was with that was trying to help her grab ginger and get away but ginger knew that her friend would come around and she rubbed her ear and that's when Katie knew to go get the police.

Yah scaring I know right and a big commitment to make huh well just think of ways to problem solve first-call all of your brothers friends before getting into someone's car because you never know who they are and what they are capable of or what they are like so make sure you are carful with people like that make a word with your family that if one is ever in trouble and send someone to get you they have to tell you what the word is before you get into there car because like I said before they could be kidnappers and out to hurt you or your family so be carful you and your family might be in danger. Also Ginger learned that if some one gets out of a car and you don't know who it is most likely its a stranger or a kidnapper looking for little kids to pick up. I personally gave this book five stars because this book is mysterious and it talks about problem solving, and figuring out things for your self and not having others do it for you so it gives you a chance to act like a grown up on most cases. Also Ginger has gained confidence.

    My book is about a girl named Ginger Shaw who has just turned 13 years old. For Gingers' birthday she went out to brunch & saw a woman starring at her. Ginger didn't know if she knew the woman. she thinks she is the "odd on out" because she is the shortest with red hair and likes sports. I would rate this book a ten out of ten because the book was fantastic book, suspense kept drawing me in the book.

You should read this book because it keeps you thinking what is going to happen next.

    For an adult, certain parts of this story don't add up or seem feasible and an adult might be thinking about those things while reading, but for a teen? This book delivers suspense, action, and good old fashioned teenage empowerment! I really enjoyed this story. Do I really think that a 6 year old brother would be so witty and sharp? No. Could a basketball coach really be in jeopardy of losing his job after the kind of complaints that were made by a couple of angry parents? No. Does it matter?

The story works and you want to go along with it for the ride. I've got a whole lot of Peg Kehret books in my classroom library and I'm ready to read some more.

    Recommended Grades: 5 - 8 Genre: Mystery Unique Feature: This book has challenging vocabulary and it seems almost like an adult mystery but because of the characters in it, students can relate to the book. It's unique because it really hooks students AND adult without even realizing it's for children.

    It's a bit dated now and prone to some unrealistic plot elements, but for reluctant readers, Peg Kehret mysteries are full of adventure. They move right alone. I have awakened several dormant readers with this an other Kehret titles.
