    I'm not really sure I have the right words for this book. There's no way for me personally to sum up what I think beyond this. It's about a girl learning to be part of a family, to be with people. It's about trauma, family, childhood, love. It's an incredible book....

    This book is spectacularly beautiful and insightful. I feel like my heart has been shredded and then carefully, lovingly pieced back together. Best middle grade I've read in a really long time!...

    This book is very special and important. I loved everything about it. The characters felt very real, and they are all diverse. The writing was simple, easy to read and very beautiful. The thing that I really liked and touched me is how Flora and Julian's foster mother loved them. She loved them like...

    This author has a very compelling style that really gets inside her main character's heads (it's first person narration, and she excels at it). There are some tough things in here, but it is ultimately a story of hope....

    Newbery peanut gallery, we need to talk about this one. I feel like lots of books have tried something like this over the years, but they are all basically The Great Gilly Hopkins but not as good. This one isn't Gilly and, incredibly, it might be almost as good....

I feel like the author did an excellent job of getting inside the head of a child who can't remember anything but the foster care system and wrote about it in a way that middle graders can understand and re...
