A real story for real kids. No gimmicks; no adult winks and nods. Gripping plot a kid, especially siblings, especially girls, will "get." An admirable, true-to-life heroine worth "knowing." Depth. A book that doesn't try to be a video game or Saturday morning cartoon. A "giving" book. Perfect ending. A book that is satisfied to be a "book." A beautiful book. A "book."

Wonderful book and illustration. I could relate to such instances in my life growing up. I took my sister to a bunch of birthday parties. :)

Excellent children's book covering sibling rivalry and the deep love just below the ugly layer of jealousy and petty differences that plague all families on a daily basis. I teared up at the end but I may just need to adjust my meds! :)
