Product Details


“This book is never boring and never predictable. Fame, good and bad fortune, friendship and mental illness all make their way into [Cammie’s] narrative.”—The New York Times Book Review

“Spinelli again shows his mastery at evoking a particular time and place while delving into the heart of a troubled adolescent…”— Publishers Weekly, starred review

“The prison community is a powerful backdrop for Cammie’s turbulent coming of age, populated with messy lives that brighten in Cammie’s presence but that have their own demons to tame.” — Bulletin, starred review

“Jerry Spinelli again proves why he’s the king of storytellers.” — Shelf Awareness, starred review

“This is a story about facing hard truths and growing up. Readers will love the details of having a prison compound for a home and adore the many secondary characters who help keep Cammie’s head above water during her desperate search for happiness.” — Booklist

“Spinelli’s gift for humorous chaos and his trademark magic realism touches are showcased here, and it is exhilarating to read about kids with so much urban freedom.” — The Horn Book

“Character development and realistic dialogue shine in this emotional historical fiction title. Spinelli’s characters are achingly real.”–School Library Journal
