4 stars (I really liked it).
What’s great about this book:
- Representation of both the MC, who has no arms, and her friend with Tourette’s
- A cheerful, fun tone throughout–easy for kids and adults alike to love
- A happy, intact family
- The main character herself
What didn’t work as well for me:
- The mystery–I felt the book would have worked as well or better without it
Luckily, the mystery wasn’t a crucial enough piece that I couldn’t enjoy the story without it, so this still rates 4 stars for me. My 11 year old son also read this and liked it.
