With his lively art and careful prose, Reynolds creates a dreamer who is quiet, loud, colorful, unique. Not always happy or in step with expectations, his lively child always finds a way back, letting us know "I'm really good at being me". The main character is "unisex" and almost always in motion. While there is clearly a message her, it is an important one and you can't finish this book without feeling good about the character and hopefully yourself. Edie Ching (up to 7)
