We received this book to via NetGalley to give an honest review. So I was really excited to be able to review this book as it seemed to be a good one to read to learn a lesson. Even though the lesson is there, I felt as though the two characters Bli and Danny didn't talk in a way that the younger kids would connect with them. K and I learned that you should give someone who is different a chance they may surprise you and they can become a good friend. Also let your parents know who you are hanging with so they can make sure they are good for you to be around. I have to say I liked the advice in the back rather than the story being told. This book wasn't truly what I was expecting it to be.
