Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 3–7—"That's the thing about best friends. They don't care about all the things you can't do:" wise words from a timid adolescent girl. Marisol is a young Filipina living in Louisiana, while also residing in her own little world. She notices things that most people would overlook, like the sights and sounds from a refrigerator. With a fascination with silent movies and a habit of assigning names to everything (even inanimate objects), endearing, relatable Marisol is also plagued by anxieties of all sorts. This story contains adorable yet thought-provoking conversations between friends, allowing for readers to feel as though they have been transported into the imagination of the main character. The main antagonist in the story is a bully of sorts, and causes grief for Marisol. Readers will be rooting for the main character, Marisol, throughout the story, as well as her kind best friend Jana. VERDICT This title is a great read for upper elementary children. With occasional, whimsical illustrations, it will keep even the most reluctant readers entertained.—Megan Honeycutt, Univ. of West Georgia, Carrollton --This text refers to the hardcover edition.


"Utterly endearing!"

-- "Annie Barrows, New York Times bestselling author"
--This text refers to the audioCD edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing read!!
By Belle’s Middle Grade on May 5, 2021
What a charming, endearing character Marisol is! I adored this story. Marisol Rainey's mother was born in the Philippines. Marisol's father works & lives part-time on an oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico. & Marisol, who has a big imagination & likes to name inanimate objects, has a tree in her backyard she calls Peppina-but she’s way too scared to climb it. This all makes Marisol the only girl in her small Louisiana town w/a mother who was born elsewhere & a father who lives elsewhere (most of the time)--the only girl who's fearful of adventure & fun. You read her story, learn whether she will be able to salvage her summer w/her best friend Jada & have fun, if she can get annoying Evie Smythe(ohhhh I don’t like her!)to leave her alone, if she’ll ever get to spend enough real time w/her dad, & if she will ever find the courage to climb Peppina..maybe, maybe, maybe, maybe! Lol Early readers will love this story. Many will also find a very relatable character in Marisol..any kid who feels shy, awkward, or different in some way. I even related to her when she speaks about how she can be not moving at all, meanwhile her brain is going high speed w/it’s thoughts. I loved the names she gives everything-including the fridge & the couch! She worries herself sick about being too scared to climb Peppina when everyone else does it no problem. Had me rooting for her the whole way. Absolutely beautiful illustrations throughout the book-all done by the author! I even learned a few things in here as well-about silent films, some actors, crocodiles, & more! I had a great time w/Marisol on her journey battling w/her fears & anxiety, & I can’t wait to see more books w/her in the future! Thank you so much Harper Collins for sending me this to review! Highly recommend for early readers out there especially!💜
