I enjoyed the lively, chatty voice of the main character, Daisy. The pacing was good, the characters fun. I loved the humor, such as their new dog eating like a “high-voltage vacuum cleaner.” It was a nice surprise to see her family going to church and Daisy thinking about the sermon afterward. Her doing so wasn’t preachy or dwelt upon in any length, but rather more as a natural thread that was organic to the character’s growth; that was refreshing, since most books for kids this age don’t include any religion or religious thoughts.
Throughout the novel, there were great explorations about following one’s dreams, navigating the storms of friendship, and untangling the definition of success. I recommend this book, especially for “middle grade” readers ages 8-12.
I can see this book working well for reluctant readers. Even readers who aren’t strong will be able to find moments to laugh at.
