Poor Heidi. A doctorate in art history, from Yale, no less. And still, she was always the one just along for the ride.At high school dances, she read "Death Be Not Proud" while everyone else engaged in teen-age mating rituals to the strains of Gerry and the Pacemakers.She was the only one at Gene McCarthy's New Hampshire headquarters who had never read Marcuse.As a gaggle of goofy Ann Arbor women self-actualized in the '70s, she could only watch while others vented.Heidi's personal life? Don't ask. Her lover, a rakish idealist turned cynical magazine editor-publisher, won't give her the time of day emotionally until he marries.

''The Heidi Chronicles,'' the Pulitzer-winning comedy-drama that ran on Broadway for 19 months, has annoyed some and pleased others. Some of those who have been annoyed by the play are feminists. That may be because the play looks back on the '60s and the women's movement with wit and bite.Wendy Wasserman is the author of the play, which is currently playing at the Kennedy Center in Washington. Wasserman, who also wrote ''Isn't It Romantic?'' specializes in plays about women, in this case, women who are hovering around 40.Wasserman was an active participant in the Sixties saga.

"I think 'The Hundred Penny Box' by Sharon Bell Mathis is an interesting book because it is about a 100-year-old lady named Aunt Dew who loves her box with 100 pennies. Every year she puts a penny in her 100-year-old box. You have to use your imagination at the end to see if she dies or not."Karen LachelleElmwood Elementary"My favorite mystery in the Sweet Valley Twins and Friends series by Francine Pascal is 'Ghost in the Graveyard!' It is about two twins who are detectives. Jessica and her sister Elizabeth capture a jewel thief."
