The setting, the voice, and the characters all LEAP off the page. I just loved Josephine. She's a complicated kid, full of anger and resentment and love and hope.

This is a great look at coping with illness, connecting with others, adjusting to new realities and identities, and accepting the infinite change that comes with being a person (and not a supercomputer without a body, Al's one true wish in life).

I can't say enough great things about this book. A fantastic read about a cool kid doing her best to figure out middle school and the many issues that come with growing up.

For those who can take the heaps and heaps of pain and trauma laid out here, they will find a devastating book beautifully written, an empowering book about speaking your truth, about solidarity, friendship, and about hope in even the very worst of times.

That's the big takeaway from this book. Become who you are, find your way through the noise, and hope that those around you can appreciate your changes and grow with you.

What matters is staying true to yourself. This is Gordy’s journey in Stand By Me, and also Max’s in A Perfect Mistake. Both of them try to do the right thing, even though it’s not easy.

Books can bring all of us incredibly important fictional friendships, and along with them, real-life respect and understanding.

Everyone has a bit of magic in them, whether it’s easy to see, or buried a little. Finding your own magic can help you recognize it in others too, and sometimes others will see it in you before you see it in yourself.
