In the tradition of Every Soul a Star and Inside Out & Back Again, Just Like Me is a funny, uplifting summer camp story about unlikely friendships and finding your place in the world from the award-winning author of This Journal Belongs to Ratchet.Who eats Cheetos with chopsticks?! Avery and Becca, my Chinese Sisters," that's who. We're not really sisters-we were just adopted from the same orphanage. And we're nothing alike. They like egg rolls, andI like pizza. They're wave around Chinese fans, and I pretend like I don't know them.Which is not easy since we're all going to summer camp to "bond." (Thanks, Mom.) To make everything worse, we have to journal about our time at camp so the adoption agency can do some kind of "where are they now" newsletter. I'll tell you where I am: At Camp Little Big Lake in a cabin with five other girls who aren't getting along, competing for a camp trophy and losing (badly), wondering how I gothere? and where I belong. Told through a mix of traditional narrative and journal entries, don't miss this funny, surprisingly sweet summer read!"A tender and honest story about a girl trying to find her place in the world, and the thread that connects us all." -Liesl Shurtliff, Author of Rump: The True Story of Rumpelstiltskin "A heartwarming story about the universal struggle of yearning to be an individual while longing to fit in."-Karen Harrington, author of Sure Kinds of Crazy"

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just Like Me I liked seeing these very different girls figure out how to accept each other. Julia’s thoughtfully written emotional struggle with her identity and fitting in is something anyone can relate to in some way, whether you’re adopted or not. #plumreview
