A Bank Street College of Education Best Book

* "A beautiful tale of perseverance."--Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"Readers will be enchanted."--VOYA

"[A] lyrical glimpse of early twentieth-century Cuba."--Booklist

"Engle's writing is customarily lovely."--Publishers Weekly

"[A] remarkable, intimate depiction of Fefa's struggle with dyslexia; Engle is masterful at using words to evoke this difficulty, and even those readers unfamiliar with the condition will understand its meaning through her rich use of imagery and detail."--Bulletin

"The idea of a wild book on which to let her words sprout is one that should speak to those with reading difficulties and to aspiring poets as well."--School Library Journal
