Publisher's Summary

She wished something would happen. Something good. To her.

Looking at the bright, fuzzy picture in the magazine, she thought, Something like that.

Checking her wish for loopholes, she found one.

Hoping it wasn't too late, she thought the word soon.

Critic Reviews

"Best of all are the understated moments, often private and piercing in their authenticity, that capture intelligent, likable teens searching for signs of who they are, and who they'll become." (Booklist)
"Young teens will certainly relate to the self-consciousnesses and uncertainty of all of the characters, each of whom is straining toward clarity and awareness." (School Library Journal)

A little slow

I ususally love the Newberrys, but this one was really slow. Nothing happens. Ever. Also, there are interesting illustrations in the book that are missed when listening to the audio version.
