I really liked this book. It started out with the main character, Vera getting bullied, by her new classmates. Once something happens throughout the story and another character goes through the same thing that Vera has to go through, they will soon be friends. It takes something to happen before other kids start to talk to one another. That is just what it took in this book, one even to lead to friendship.

A quirky little children's book, this must certainly be an autobiographical work by the author. Not only does the dedication on the last page allude to a real life version of the secondary character, but the sheer randomness of events in the book lends itself to a string of truth-is-stranger-than-fiction happenings that take place in this story. It doesn't wrap up all nice and neat which is refreshing and much more true to life than most children's stories.

Apparently based on the author's childhood experiences, but I just found myself puzzled as to why incidents were included in the book. A baby duck eats dry cement in the garage and dies? My daughters and I laughed at the sheer absurdity, but I wonder how the author was expecting the audience to react to the cute little duck with its little webbed feet in the air.

This is a cute and silly books for younger students to read when they get to a new school. Although some days may seem the worst, just finding a friend can help turn the whole day around. This is a good book to teach children not to keep their heads down and give up, because something new and wonderful might be right around the corner!

I wasn't into the book at first. Then it touched me the worse her day got and finally being eaten by ants. It was a great story about how it can get better and making new friends.
