"Entertaining and often illuminating." ""The Horn Book""" "Entertaining and often illuminating."--The Horn Book "Lin creates an endearing protagonist, realistically dealing with universal emotions and situations. Girls everywhere, but especially those in the Asian-American community, will find much to embrace here."--Publishers Weekly "This comfortable first-person story will be a treat for Asian-American girls looking to see themselves in their reading, but also for any reader who enjoys stories of friendship and family life."--Kirkus * "Lin does a remarkable job capturing the soul and spirit of books like those of Hayward or Maud Hart Lovelace, reimagining them through the lens of her own story, and transforming their special qualities into something new for today's young readers."--Booklist, starred review "Entertaining and often illuminating." The Horn Book"
