Review

"This delightful debut welcomes readers in like a house filled with love." —Kirkus Reviews, Starred review

"Cheerful and hope-filled." —School Library Journal, Starred review

"Readers will enjoy rooting for [Lou] as she finds out exactly what makes a house into a home." —Booklist

"Mae Respicio's charming middle-grade debut offers an intimate experience of Filipino culture as well as a message of empowerment to young girls with grand goals. . . . A sweet treasure for any budding reader." —Shelf Awareness

"If this book were a house, the rooms would be filled with warmth, family, and friendship." —Erin Entrada Kelly, author of the Newbery Medal winner Hello, Universe; The Land of Forgotten Girls; and Blackbird Fly

"Equal parts girl-heart, muscle and know-how for today's reader. Endearing to the end." --Rita Williams-Garcia, Newbery Honor- and Coretta Scott King Award-winning author of the National Book Award Finalist Clayton Byrd Goes Underground

"Warm, funny and affirming. As we get to know Lou, her extended Filipino family, and friends, the door opens into her life and, ultimately, her home." --Lisa Yee, author of the Millicent Min trilogy and the DC Super Hero Girls series

"I fell in love with Lou and her wonderful extended family. This story may be about a tiny house, but it has an enormous heart."  —Kate Messner, author of Breakout and Capture the Flag

About the Author

Mae Respicio grew up in Northern California and like the main character in her debut middle grade novel, spent many childhood summers dancing in a Filipino folk dance troupe. Mae is a past recipient of a PEN Center USA Emerging Voices Fellowship. She's been a writer-in-residence at Hedgebrook and Atlantic Center for the Arts and has published a variety of musings on parenthood. She lives with her family in the San Francisco Bay Area, not far from the ocean and the redwoods.
