I adore this book and the three main characters: quiet Grace, loving Malia, artistic Jada. Each girl is struggling with something that seems huge in her life, and each feels alone. A kind librarian and a treasure box help the girls connect to each other, and the resulting story is a beautiful, textured tribute to friendship. The multiple starred reviews are well deserved!

Sweet. Lovely. Touching. I have so many adjectives for this book! The story is one of friendship, courage, acceptance of change, and new beginnings. Vickers' characters are incredibly vivid and their stories intertwine seamlessly. I want to be friends with all of the girls! And I loved the Salt Lake City setting. Wonderful debut!

Review In a touching, gentle middle grade novel, three ten year old girls grapple with big changes as they get ready for the new school year. Shy, anxious Grace, misses her best friend, the first girl her own age she made a strong connection with, who moved across the country to Boston. Jada, along with her dad, makes a big move to Salt Lake City, leaving the East Coast behind for an unfamiliar city. And Malia adjusts to her new role as a big sister, with her mom in the hospital on bed rest. What brings the girls together? Well, some might call it a little bit of magic in the form a treasure box in the library's lost and found, but others might notice a certain children's librarian recognizing some girls in need. I'm a sucker for middle grade stories that deal with friendship. So many of them are about friendships on the fritz, but instead of taking the familiar path, Vickers focuses on the just as important beginning. Friendships flickering on the edge of chance encounters, and possibility. I love these three girls, all of them dealing with different challenges, but bravely and sensitively. I loved seeing how the arts -- creative writing, painting, and music -- play a role in bringing them together
