    " Awseome book but there is a huge cliffhanger at the end. Takes place in the 1970's to the 1990's in Chicago then Michigan. Social Issue is LIFE I basically mean overcoming challenges,family.friendship,survivl and sometimed even racism. A MUST READ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! "

    " I didn't really care for all the references to weight. There's a paragraph where Yolanda is looking through the dictionary and comes across the word genitalia and its definition. That just seemed odd in a children's book. For the young adult library. "

    " this book is ok i guess.there are some funny parts though "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jonathan Katz | 8/15/2013

    " Very interesting, really enjoyed it. It's about a girl, her brother, and his harmonica, and what genius really is. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan | 6/14/2013

    " It was fun to read about Grand Rapids (Grand River in the book) and the Grand Rapids Public Library. I liked the fact that Yolanda and her aunt were overweight. "

    " I'm amazed this won a Newbery Award because I was not impressed with it. It is well written but it wasn't very gripping or all that interesting. "

    " Yolanda knows her younger brother is a musical genius not a slow learner and by the end of the book, we know it too. A moving story of sibling support and love. "

    " This book was pretty good. I liked how she thinks her brother was a genuis. It was cute and it kept my my intrest. "

    " A lovely book about a sister looking out for her brother who expresses himself through music! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leslie | 11/13/2011

    " I think this book is meant for 9-12 yr olds but it has several spots where the characters are using strong curse words so I will not be letting my 10 yr old read it anytime soon. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heather Pehnec | 5/21/2011

    " Fenner provides a unique interpretation of a child with special needs and the way that he processes the world around him. This book will inspire young readers to slow down and listen to their own thoughts, and think about the way they treat others. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessica | 6/5/2009

    " This is the story of Yolonda and her younger brother who she thinks is a musical genius. Basically just tells how she sets out to prove to the world that he is a genius. It wasn't too exciting or involving, but a sweet sibling-relationship story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lucy K-z | 4/8/2009

    " This book was good but had a lot of sad stuff in it, and mean stuff. "
