Reviews

"Erskine aptly conveys Lily's inner struggle between her reserved demeanor and her desire to stand up to bullying. The metafiction appearance between chapters of 'Libro, ' the voice of the physical book, adds humor and draws attention to the literary craft. Even the quietest readers will cheer."
-- Kirkus Reviews

"A well-told tale, with a clear understanding of bullying and empathy for all involved." -- Booklist

"Erskine effectively captures Lily's struggles to find her voice. A touching novel that will leave readers cheering for Lily's quiet victories." -- Publishers Weekly

"Curious kids who love books will enjoy joining this welcoming group of friends as they learn about the world we share." -- School Library Journal
