It's bad enough that Jen is forced to move to a farm in the country with her mom's new boyfriend, Walter, but when he brings his daughter Andy into the mix, Jen's feelings of isolation deepen. Walter is bossy and condescending, and Andy is "Miss Perfect." As the makeshift family establishes their farm and a booth at the weekend market, Jen's struggles with math and clashes with Andy stoke familial tensions. Knisley's first foray into children's comicsâa fictionalized version of her own experienceâbeautifully captures the loneliness of childhood. Dropped into a new life with relative strangers, Jen's only refuge is her notebook, the doodles of which serve as full-page chapter breaks and occasionally intrude on panels. Knisley's storytelling style is a natural fit for middle-grade readers, with her clean, inviting art tracking Jen's emotional journey through subtle shifts in expression and posture. While Walter's antagonism will make readers red in the face, Jen's growth and relationships ultimately provide a heartwarming arc to this quietly charming tale. Grades 4-6.
