Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

PW singled out Wyeth's "compassionate renderings of contemporary families" in this novel about an 11-year-old who becomes the target of racial slurs as a result of her mixed racial and ethnic heritage. Ages 8-12.

From School Library Journal

Grade 4-6-Eleven-year-old Daughter McGuire's life has changed drastically. Her father has gone off to write a book, she and her mother and brothers have moved next door to her grandparents, and she is attending a new school. Aside from all that, she doesn't quite know who or what she is. Ethnic issues confuse her, as she is of African, Italian, Irish, Jewish, and Russian descent. Through her struggles to find a place for herself (which include facing down a bully, learning about her roots, and coming to grips with her father's departure), she gains confidence and self-esteem. The book deals with serious issues, but the narrator never loses her sense of humor. Her ethnic makeup does stretch credibility a bit, and there are some plot contrivances, but they do not detract from the story. A good choice that might help middle schoolers appreciate differences in people and the value of not always fitting into a particular mold.

I sent this to my 11 year old niece as a gift. From the moment it arrived she couldn't put it down. She loved it!
