"Absolute middle grade perfection . . . This book is a celebration of the quiet courage and daily bonds that make us a community!" -Kelly Yang, award-winning author of Front Desk

"I loved this deeply real yet wondrous tale about how the little things in life turn out to be the big things." -Abby Hanlon, author of Dory Fantasmagory

* "Thoughtful, creative, and compassionate . . . Miller's pitch-perfect narrative voice balances humor and whimsy with harsher realities. Magnolia isn't insulated from negative feelings; rather, her world is one where strength can be quiet, empathy can be learned, and community is critical. Wildly funny, charming, and deeply heartfelt." -Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"Miller (Know My Name, for adults) crafts an endearing romp in which Magnolia makes her first ride-or-die friend and learns to appreciate her life in new ways." -Publishers Weekly

"Miller's fresh and honest storytelling approach, and her endearing characters, are spot-on for early-middle-grade readers confronting the highs and lows of friendship, racial tension, and the trials of growing up." --The Horn Book Magazine
