Reviews

"Middle-grade readers will find many ways to connect with Anna and her friends in this warm family and school story."
--Kirkus

"This book deals deftly with a range of thorny adoption- and ethnic-stereotyping issues, such as the abandonment of female Chinese infants and the assumption that all Asians are gifted students, and it has special meaning for families touched by adoption."
--School Library Journal, starred review

"The science-fair and adoption angles make this useful in a number of settings, and readers who have followed Anna since fourth grade will hope Cheng goes on to keep tabs on her as she reaches sixth grade."
--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
