In this book for middle graders, She Loves You Yeah, Yeah, Yeah by Ann Hood, Trudy Mixer is a junior high student who is growing up in the early 1960’s. Trudy is a huge Beatles fan and starts a fan club at her school. The author gives little tidbits of information about important happenings during that time like President Kennedy’s assassination and the Vietnam War. Trudy decides to go to a Beatles concert and hopes to meet Paul McCartney. Being a retired elementary librarian, I appreciate the author wanting to tell about that time in America, however, I really can’t imagine this book appealing to a large audience of middle grade students. It is witty and charming and of course I enjoyed it because I am about the same age as Trudy Mixer!
