    " I read this as part of In2Books program, with my 4th grade epal. It took me 2 weeks to read it because I was trying to to figure out how to gently explain to her why I didn't like it. I haven't had her report yet, but I did send my thoughts to her. I hope she likes it better than I did. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joanne | 10/14/2013

    " This is a great young adult book. It is much easier to read than Garcia Girls or In the TIme of the Butterflies. It's interesting for students to feel stronger in English than Spanish and sometimes take heat for it. For the multilingual students, it's a constant challenge. "

    " The kid couldn't wait for me to finish this story. It was heartwarming and funny. I would recommend this book for anyone who has a kid going through a relocation. The kids in the book have moved to Vermont from NYC. It's not just a Latino kid book! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Travis | 1/6/2011

    " This is a kids' book and while it's cute and I liked it well enough, it's not really one of those kids' books that's terribly enjoyable for an adult. At least not to me. "
