Reviews

"The protagonist's awkward missteps swell with unsophisticated exuberance; this novel might pair well with Jeanne Birdsall's The Penderwicks or another nouveau classic title."--School Library Journal
* "McKay continues to display her extraordinary gifts (for language, nuance, humor; for capturing human nature and family dynamics) in this third book about the endearingly imperfect Binny Cornwallis."--Horn Book, starred review
* "With her usual skill and superb comic timing the author brings her all-white cast's brangles to happy, even joyous resolutions. Ross' scribbly grayscale illustrations add suitably frantic notes. Fans will be delighted by these further misadventures of the rumpled but loving--and lovable--Cornwallis clan."--Kirkus, starred review
