  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2021 March #2
    *Starred Review* On the first day of summer, Marisol watches as Jada, her best friend, climbs into the magnolia tree, sits on a branch, and whispers that she's found a bird's nest made of twigs and interwoven with a pink ribbon. Marisol longs to see the nest, too (after all, it's in her backyard), but a strong fear of falling keeps her firmly on the ground. Sometime later, after she admits her anxiety to Jada, she finds that she can pull herself up onto the tree's lowest branch, but will she ever find the courage to climb higher? Kelly's lively, expressive black-and-white illustrations appear throughout the book's 21 short chapters. From the author of the Newbery Award–winning Hello, Universe (2017), this perceptive story focuses on Marisol, an imaginative Filipina American girl who names the magnolia tree (Peppina), her bicycle (Ginny), and the refrigerator (Buster), and she sometimes talks to them as well. Set in Louisiana, the first volume in the Maybe Marisol series is an immediately engaging and ultimately rewarding choice for readers moving up to chapter books. Grades 2-4.
