A Booklist Reader Best Book of the Month

“Natalie is an engaging narrator whose struggles at home and with her peers ring true.”
—Deborah Hopkinson, award-winning author

“Inspiring, emotional, and heartwarming.”
—Melissa Savage, author of Lemons

“A compassionate glimpse of mental illness accessible to a broad audience.”
Kirkus Reviews, starred

“Aside from the obvious connection to STEM, Keller’s layered, accessible story has offers beautifully crafted metaphors, a theme of mending old friendships and creating new ones, and an empowering teacher to a variety of readers. . . . A winning story full of heart and action.”
Booklist, starred

“Natalie’s Korean heritage is sensitively explored, as is the central issue of depression.”
Publishers Weekly

“Natalie learns that, as with the egg, people, too, are fragile and need support and padding to break their falls. An emotional story that explores parental depression with realism and empathy.”
School Library Journal

“A sweet and hope-filled story.”
Brightly
