“A touching tale of understanding and friendship . . . The message of education as a vehicle for progress and dismantling hatred is one that will strike a chord with readers.” — Kirkus Reviews
"Quigley adeptly creates strong classroom scenes that convey an inclusive student body’s realistic dynamic and an endearing, assured seven-year-old protagonist who appreciates her cultural identity." - PW, starred review
EMLA will be closed from Dec. 23 through the New Year's weekend so Joan and I can relax, enjoy our families and friends, and read read read! (We might also be preparing a New Year's surprise for the agency, but shhh, don't tell.) We hope the rest of 2010 is warm and bright for all our clients, editors, colleagues, readers, and all, and we look forward to many happy things to come in 2011!
