“A message without being obvious, this story is something I will enjoy reading to my son for many years to come.
“The illustrations are ideal for younger readers while the story line and not-so-hidden lesson is relevant for all ages. Our urge to fit in and adapt to others expectations never really goes away until we realize who we really are. Jill is someone we can all relate to in the desire to experience the greener grass and more ideal friendships but in her struggle to make herself fit in she realizes so much more.
“A great read for boys and girls, this author reminded me a little of Dr Seuss in her whimsical methods but with a much more meaningful storyline (and all actual words).” – Sarah Butland
