I read Millie Cooper, Take a Chance in elementary school and it stuck with me for the rest of my life. Being a shy girl myself, with the exact same anxieties and fears as Millie, it was the first time I realized I wasn't the only one who had these fears. I cannot articulate what relief it brought me or how it helped heal old wounds. But, while I remembered the story, I'd forgotten the title and despite 10+ years of trying to find it, was unable. But thanks to some remarkable people in LibraryThing's Name That Book, I was able to find the book again - and buy it and other 2 I didn't know existed. Reading them again had the same impact on me as when I was a child. To remember, I am not the only one who thinks and feels this way - it is to be a little less anxious, I think. And even as an adult, I must remember to Take a Chance on things....

Some may find these books trite and old-fashioned, but to me, these books impacted me like few others have, something time has not diminished. ( )
