Reviews:

Children’s Literary Classics: McClure exhibits rare talent in this story which follows a young girl on her journey to discovery as she struggles to be true to herself in this compelling coming-of-age novel.

Award winning author Darby Karchut: I, for one, think Beverly Stowe McClure has just written her best book yet. I’ve read most of her other ones and loved them all, but this one is my favorite.
The school librarian at the middle school where I teach is already looking into buying a copy for the school library. It’s that good.
