  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2020 February #2
    *Starred Review* An unlikely friendship, details about life with type 1 diabetes (a topic seldom addressed in middle-grade fiction), an exciting treasure hunt, and a loving portrayal of the special bond between a girl and her diabetic alert dog: Yohalem skillfully weaves these compelling elements together into a story with wide appeal. Thirteen-year-old Blue plans to spend the summer out on her old motorboat searching for a long-lost family treasure, in honor of her beloved late grandfather. Her plans, however, are complicated by her role as the "poster child" for a Cure Juvenile Diabetes Foundation fundraiser. The party is being organized by her mother, along with the help of famous actor Edward Buttersby, who is renting a vacation house in the wealthy resort area near Blue's rundown home, and when he asks her to entertain his daughter, Jules, Blue can't say no. The realities of diabetes management are addressed here in an authentic voice, acknowledging the seriousness of Blue's condition even as she longs to be known as something other than "Diabetes Girl." Both Blue's and her parents' feelings and motivations are portrayed realistically without bogging down the momentum of what is a very engaging story. Readers of Yohalem's earlier Cast Off (2015) will be intrigued to find more resolution for those characters, but this book stands strongly alone. Grades 4-7. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
