A lot happens in this short book, and while I think it's handled well and fairly, especially given this is more a middle grade than a young adult novel, I still wanted a lot more than what I got. I could have used some more character development, especially with Dellie. We don't get to know what's eating away at her until pretty far in the novel, and there aren't many clues dropped before hand. And it's a big thing. More emotional heft could have made this a tad stronger, too. Not sure I bought the parents in the story. A good, happy, married couple (and in the projects!) but they felt very flat to me in every situation they were in.
