Reviews

"The intensely awkward self-consciousness of the middle school years is presented with realistic sensitivity and insight. An emotionally perceptive story of awakening compassion for self and others."--Kirkus Reviews
"McCullough writes with compassion and knowledge as she traces Callie's ups and downs in a new country alongside her burgeoning, awkwardly won knowledge of friendship and self."

--Publishers Weekly
"With appealing jacket art, a distinctive setting, and an involving narrative, this inviting book delivers a good story."--Booklist
