Reviews

A New York Times Best Illustrated Book

"Loneliness is a language that doesn't need translation....It's a language understood by anyone who has endured the interminable wait for a Géraldine of her own." -- The New York Times

"Readers will be delighted to see Helene's world change as she grows up, learning to ignore the mean girls and realizing that, like Jane, she is worthy of friendship and love." -- School Library Journal, Starred Review

"Hélène's emotional tangle is given poignant expression through Arsenault's pitch-perfect mixed-media art . . . [Her] story is sweetly comforting and compelling." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, Starred Review "There was no possibility of hiding anywhere today.
Not in the halls at school or out in the schoolyard or even in the far stairway, the one leading to art class that smells like sour milk.
They're everywhere, just like their insults scribbled on the walls."
