    I adored this diverse middle grade read! The majority of the story takes place on a single day, when a very unlikely band of characters come together on a strange adventure.

    My blog review:There is a certain kind of book that can be tricky for me, a quiet, but emotionally powerful book. I see such books as teetering on tightropes --- balancing just right the heartstrings-tugging, the poignancy, the tenderness, the provoking-of-tears. Too much and I feel manipulated, too...

    Listening to the story of this book was like listening to a lullaby. Peaceful, light, and absolutely lovely.- I love Kelly's narrative; it was tender and so darn witty. I love how she captures the voices and imagination of children.- Integrates Filipinx culture and stories, told by Virgil's funny an...

    Wow I was surprised by this book. I love the exploration of a deaf 11-year-old girl attending public school. I'll be filming a review for this and will post it here when it's up. ...
