A beautiful story, full of compassion, growth, friendship, love and awareness. This should be on school reading lists. It takes a young girl on a journey of discovery that expands her world and makes it better for those around her.
I'm buying a copy for my daughter to add to her library for her students, because I'm keeping my copy in my library for my grandchildren to read.
