"Beth Vrabel proves herself a master of middle school milieu with this updated take on a classic story of breaking boundaries and finding common ground, brought to life with a diverse cast by turns funny, infuriating, and ultimately caring, that readers will be sure to identify with."
— Melissa Wyatt, author of Funny How Things Change
