This is such a tender, moving novel. Introverted and imaginative kids will see themselves in this book and extroverts will perhaps gain some empathy for their quieter peers. The ingenuity of the kids and their maker's ethic is admirable. This magical summer story of growing up and coming into yourself is meant to be shared and treasured.
