Review “Will keep youngsters totally engaged. This novel’s gentle storytelling
carries a theme of love and emphasizes what is really right in the world.”
―School Library Journal, Starred Review“This is truly Georgina’s story, and to
O’Connor’s great credit, it’s Georgina herself who figures out what’s right
and does it. The myriad effects of homelessness and the realistic picture of
moral quandary will surely generate discussion.” ―Booklist“A suspenseful and
achingly realistic story.” ―Kirkus Reviews“O’Connor knows how to spin a
touching story, and reading this novel is its own reward.” ―The Horn
Book“O’Connor once again smoothly balances challenging themes with her
heroine’s strength and sense of humor.” ―Publishers Weekly“Will give a more
privileged audience much to ponder.” ―The Bulletin of the Center for
Children’s Books“A must-have for a classroom library.” ―IRA Read more About
