"Lively dialogue and a succinct narrative laced with humor effectively convey Summer’s emotions, observations, and courage. Readers will relate to her uncertainties and admire both her compassion and her work ethic."
"Another engaging novel from the Newbery Medal–winning Kadohata. ... Kadohata’s already sizable audience will likely increase with this title."
"Kadohata makes all the right choices in structure and narrative…Readers who pull back the layers of obsessions and fears will find a character who is determined, compassionate and altogether delightful."
