Product description

Review

* “Unforgettable and uplifting. . . . Deals with the hardships of middle school in a funny, yet realistic and thoughtful manner. Ally has a great voice, she is an unforgettable, plucky protagonist that the reader roots for from page one. This novel is a must-have.”School Library Connection, starred review


* “Filled with a delightful range of quirky characters and told with heart, the story also explores themes of family, friendship, and courage in its many forms. . . . It has something to offer for a wide-ranging audience. . . . Offering hope to those who struggle academically and demonstrating that a disability does not equal stupidity, this is as unique as its heroine.”
Booklist, starred review 

* “Mullaly Hunt again paints a nuanced portrayal of a sensitive, smart girl struggling with circumstances beyond her control. . . . Ally’s raw pain and depression are vividly rendered, while the diverse supporting cast feels fully developed. . . . Mr. Daniels is an inspirational educator whose warmth radiates off the page. Best of all, Mullaly Hunt eschews the unrealistic feel-good ending for one with hard work and small changes. Ally’s journey is heartwarming but refreshingly devoid of schmaltz.”
School Library Journal, starred review 

“[Hunt’s] depiction of Ally’s learning struggles is relatable, and Ally’s growth and relationships feel organic and real.”
Publishers Weekly

“Poignant. . . . Emphasis on ‘thinking outside the box’ . . . Ally’s new friendships are satisfying, as are the recognition of her dyslexia and her renewed determination to read. Fans of R.J. Palacio’s
Wonder will appreciate this feel-good story of friendship and unconventional smarts.”
Kirkus Reviews
 
“Reminiscent of Polacco’s wonderful
Thank You, Mr. Falker. . . . Ally’s feeling of loneliness and desire to fit in will resonate with young teen readers, as many share those feelings without the difficulty of dyslexia. . . . A tribute to teachers who go the extra mile to reach every student. . . . A touching story with an important message.”Voice of Youth Advocates
 
“Entertaining dialogue . . . Ally’s descriptions of her ‘mind movies’ are creative and witty. . . . The treatment of a group of sixth-graders with various quirks who face down their bullies extends the book’s interest beyond the immediate focus on dyslexia.”
The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

“Readers will . . . cheer for this likable girl.”
The Horn Book

3.0 out of 5 stars Great book!! Not so good with the condition it came in.
By Linda Bishundeo on November 27, 2020
I just received this book about 10 minutes ago. I bought it for my daughter’s book collection. We were excited that it came but disappointed with all the scratches on the cover. I buy a lot of books from Amazon but I haven’t had one with so many scratches. It looks used but it’s supposed to be brand new.
