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

Review

“Erin Entrada Kelly is supremely perceptive, as always, and Maybe Maybe Marisol Rainey is utterly endearing! Anyone who has ever felt shy or shaky will find a soul mate and an inspiration in Marisol.” -- Annie Barrows, New York Times–bestselling author of the Ivy + Bean books

“Hilarious and heart-melting—Marisol charmed me! More, please.” -- Sara Pennypacker, New York Times-bestselling author of Pax

“From the author of the Newbery Award–winning Hello, Universe, this perceptive story focuses on Marisol, an imaginative Filipina American girl . . . The first volume in the Maybe Marisol series is an immediately engaging and ultimately rewarding choice for readers moving up to chapter books.” -- Booklist (starred review)

“Marisol is a young Filipina living in Louisiana, while also residing in her own little world. She notices things that most people would overlook . . . Endearing, relatable Marisol is also plagued by anxieties of all sorts. This story contains adorable yet thought-provoking conversations . . . A great read for upper elementary children. With occasional, whimsical illustrations, it will keep even the most reluctant readers entertained.” -- School Library Journal (starred review)

“Kelly reaches out to a younger audience in an approachable chapter book about thoughtful worrier Marisol. . . . She can’t imagine what it feels like to give a book report without quaking, or to visit her extended family in the Philippines—much less what it would feel like to be brave enough to climb the tree. . . . The story’s tension is built from the skillful accumulation of small moments and the strong character development. Frequent delightfully quirky line drawings by the author add humor and personality.” -- Horn Book (starred review)

“A book of truths, witty insights and metaphors, and — for the first time — Kelly’s own illustrations, which are lightheartedly poignant.” -- New York Times

“A sweet story of a girl trying to overcome her fears and anxieties. Marisol’s story also touches on friendship, bullies, siblings, having a parent who lives away from home, and having a parent from another country. . . . There’s no maybe about it; readers will enjoy this charming story.” -- Kirkus Reviews

“Newbery Medalist Kelly once again shows a knack for capturing a childlike perspective as Marisol navigates her feelings: avoiding a school bully and navigating her identity, finding the courage to ride her bike past a frightening dog, and debating whether to admit her fears . . . There is no calamitous “do-or-die” moment that forces Marisol to confront her fear; instead, Kelly lets Marisol ease her way through it, in the process offering a clear message about doing things in one’s own time.” -- Publishers Weekly

“Marisol worries about a lot of things, and she also worries that she worries so much . . . Kelly offers a compassionate portrait of an anxious kid, and Marisol’s inner dialogue—and particularly her inner criticism—will likely ring true for any kid who’s been accused of being too sensitive.” -- Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

“A delightful, relatable story about friendship and courage . . . Anyone who has ever had trouble feeling brave will be empowered by Marisol.” -- NBC News

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!💜
