Reviews

This novel will appeal to many young readers but will have special meaning for those who know what it is to be unwanted and are searching for a place to call home. || A light hearted fast-paced book. It is full of warmth and humour and deserves its selection as a Smithsonian Notable Book. || This witty, rollicking American import leaves readers which much to think about.
