"Although the issues Celie faces--loss of her best friend, conflicts with her sister, concerns about her cognitively compromised grandmother--are major, the story is in no way heavy... A heartfelt but amusing story about the many challenges of growing up." --Kirkus Reviews "Ten-year-old Celie continues the ultra-honest (and at times unintentionally funny) journal she began in the first book, Friendship Over!... Celie's voice is fresh, completely unselfconscious, and emphatic... Much of the book's considerable humor, as well as its pathos, is communicated in Celie's sketches, diagrams, and notes--scribbly, heartfelt, and immediate." --Horn Book
