Professional reviews

"Mary Ann Hoberman, Children's Poet Laureate, makes a successful foray into middle-grade fiction. With her poet's ear she's able to connect with what's going on in a 10-year-old's mind. It's hard to imagine a more gifted and believable narrator of girls' roles than Cassandra Morris. Morris is utterly convincing as Allie, making us feel her anxiety over moving to a new town and leaving behind her best friend. Yet Morris portrays Allie's great resolve and pluck as she determines to seek new friendships and find her way. Ultimately, it's Morris's thoughtful delivery as Allie begins to rethink some of her first impressions that will leave listeners with the feeling of satisfaction furnished by good books. D.G.
