Ellie is an empathetic character - I have never moved to a new school, but I've been in new situations and I think Ellie's reactions and responses to being the new girl are right on. Also humorous and adventurous -- drawing the backs of people's heads as a way to learn their names, playing great games with new neighbors.

This is a sketch book -- and the sketches remind me of Diary of a Wimpy Kid.
