Her best-known titles include A Proud Taste for Scarlet and Miniver, which was an American Library Association Notable Children's Book and National Book Award nominee, 1974; The Second Mrs. Giaconda and Father's Arcane Daughter (both ALA Best Book for young adults); and Throwing Shadows (ALA Notable Children's Book and American Book Award nomination, 1980). She won the Newbery Honor in 1968 for Jennifer, Hecate, Macbeth, William McKinley, and Me, Elizabeth and the Newbery Medal in 1968 and the William Allen White Award in 1970 for From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E.
