This is a story told in free verse about Bindi and her summer of discontent. And when you are 11 and your parents are separating and you have to move to a small apartment, there isn't much to smile about. Mrs. Spinelli has a way that puts you right inside the mind of her characters, I felt like I was there with Bindi, good times and bad. This is a sweet story about family and friendship, but it deals with some heavy issues like divorce and homelessness. I love free verse novels and I love how Eileen Spinelli does free verse. Great characters and a great story.
