Read in February, 2012

This one is for older teens. An important look into life as a teen and a "Little Person" but also sad and intense. The story takes place in Ann Arbor and DeWoskin clearly knows Ann Arbor very well - other than the diner her parents own and the school she attends all locations she references are real, and accurately portrayed. The story is told with an authentic voice that floats back and forth between a horrible life-changing incident that is foreshadowed, with the details doled out slowly to the point where you know where she's going and it feels like a speeding train about to hit you square on. I am glad to see that someone has finally written a book about being a Little Person as this is the first time I've come across this in Teen Lit.
