This book has such great character development and the narration pulled me in from the very beginning. Another great read from the Juvenile fiction section that is well worth a look.

I just listened to this audio book and loved it! I picked it up because I know it's a middle grade reading requirement for some schools and I was curious. It's a new classical favorite about a girl who gets uprooted from her life and adapts to a new life in America. Takes place during the 1920's and California strikes for workers of the farms.

The most amazing book that inspire me.I LOVE the ending!!!!!!My favorite phrase is "we are like the phoenix raising again with a new life ahead of." I suggest you to write another book like this one, maybe part 2.
