Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my favourites I read this book when I was probably in grade seven and when I reread the book a few years later, I still loved it. I really liked how Ms. Person captured that time when a girl is just becoming a teenager, but still acts and behaves like a child. The awkwardness of Eliza really comes through as she tries to fit in at an all-girls school in Vancouver for grade seven year. What she finds is a kindred spirit in her classmate, Helen.
