Product description

Review

★ “Kyle Lukoff’s remarkable Different Kinds of Fruit will be as meaningful to young readers today as Judy Blume’s Are you There God? It’s Me, Margaret was for generations of readers before them.” – BookPage, starred review

★ “Lukoff masterfully portrays the personalities, both child and adult, that Annabelle comes to know, believes she knows, and those whom Annabelle questions can ever know her…This one belongs in every library serving grade-school kids.”
School Library Journal, starred review

★ “This is a valuable, informative, entertaining, and realistic read for middle school students.” –
School Library Connection, starred review

★ “Lukoff reflects diversity in the world around Annabelle while also heightening her awareness of spaces that are not as inclusive as they claim to be and exploring what to do with that understanding. Inquisitive, engaged, and action-seeking.” –
Kirkus Reviews, starred review
 
★ “Lukoff offers a story with vivid, well-rounded characters that never talks down to kids… Themes of inclusion and privilege in today's society are seamlessly integrated into the familiar plot of a kid's first crush, and the focus on the great ways that communities can come together to keep everyone within it safe is a gratifying through line.” –
Booklist, starred review
 
“Bighearted and affirming.” –
Publishers Weekly

“A brave title for a time when we need brave books for kids more than ever." –
Betsy Bird, A Fuse #8 Production

“This exploration of gender issues will engage readers with its satisfying progression as the sixth graders fight a bigoted mother in the classroom and take steps to join the wider LGBTQ+ community.”
The Horn Book

“Newbery Honor winner Kyle Lukoff takes a deft hand to navigating the complexity of different generations of LGBTQIA+ activists and how their own prejudices can affect their children.” –
