"A gentle, affectionate take on familiar middle-grade issues and the joys of reading." --Kirkus "Tender . . . Cheng credibly portrays Anna's budding maturity." --Publishers Weekly "Cheng's telling is as straightforward yet sympathetic as her self-contained main character; and Halpin's often lighthearted pencil-and-wash sketches both decorate and enrich this perceptive novel." --Horn Book "Readers are led to discover the extraordinary within the ordinary, and to witness how kindness can draw trust and create confidence in a hesitant child." --School Library Journal "This is a remarkably pithy and nuanced portrait of a fourth-grader and her world, and the streamlined simplicity of Cheng's writing and the brief page count make it accessible." --Bulletin "The Year of the Book was a pleasure to read and more. This is a novel to treasure and share with every middle-grade reader you know." --New York Times Book
