Praise

“In her tender, funny, far-reaching new novel in verse, Margarita Engle…expands our notion of who gets to do the rescuing in children’s animal stories…Via elegantly efficient narrative poetry, Engle weaves themes of longing and belonging, of communication and the sorts of attachment that are too deep ever to be communicated with words.” —New York Times

“Employing immersive free verse that conveys themes of compassion, friendship, justice, and vulnerability, Engle (Rima’s Rebellion) captures how inexplicable Oriol’s grief feels, encasing it in a powerful, charitable, and brave young voice.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Replete with lovely, nearly magical imagery…Brilliant, joyful, and deeply moving.” Kirkus Reviews, starred review
 
“This is a book that readers won’t want to put down until the last page.” School Library Journal
