This novel is great for girls in grades 5-6 who are looking for a story about someone “just like themselves” and may be a great tool to break the ice about bullying, cliques and lunch time drama and politics, allowing for great discussion for a girl’s book club or a mother-daughter book discussion. Uniquely told in chapters outlined by the month’s events, it follows Winnie a whole year, beginning with her eleventh birthday, and ending with her twelfth.
Can’t get enough? Don’t worry, the story continues with Twelve. Cheer Winnie on as she falls, and gets back up again – as she follows her heart and does what she feels is right.
