A Publishers Weekly Best Book of the Year

* "Told in a lyrical, fairy tale-like style . . . Readers will be swept up." --Publishers Weekly, starred review

* "This well-written novel belongs in all collections." -- School Library Journal, starred review

"Ryan writes a moving story in clear, poetic language that children will sink into, and the book offers excellent opportunities for discussion and curriculum support." -- Booklist

"Ryan's... style is engaging, her characters appealing, and her story is one that-though a deep-rooted part of the history of California, the Depression, and thus the nation-is little heard in children's fiction. It bears telling to a wider audience." -- Kirkus Reviews

5.0 out of 5 stars My granddaughter's first adult book is a winner.
By Betsy Perdichizzi on August 17, 2016
This book is required reading for my granddaughter who is entering middle school in Florida. The subject crosses many borders and many themes. It presents real problems in complex ways,so that you can see all sides of the question. There are many questions still unanswered in our society. It is a book that is hopeful and realistic. I really enjoyed it with her.
