Product description

Review

A sensitive and possibly reassuring take on a psychological vulnerability that is all too common and not easily defended. (Kirkus Review 2013-07-17)

More than a few readers will recognize themselves in Hélène and find comfort. (Publishers Weekly 2013-07-15)

Loneliness is a language that doesn?t need translation... it?s a language understood by anyone who has endured the interminable wait for a Géraldine of her own. (New York Times 2013-08-25)

Readers will be delighted to see Helene?s world change as she grows up, learning to ignore the mean girls and realizing that, like Jane, she is worthy of friendship and love. (School Library Journal, STARRED REVIEW 2013-10-18)

Hélène?s emotional tangle is given poignant expression through Arsenault?s pitch-perfect mixed-media art...[Her] story is sweetly comforting and compelling. (Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, STARRED REVIEW 2013-10-15)

Britt?s poetic prose captures Hélène?s heartbreaking isolation . . . [A] brutally beautiful story. (Horn Book, STARRED REVIEW 2013-11-27)

The theme is universal; girls, especially those who have been at the receiving end of negative comments, will relate to Hélène. (Library Media Connections 2014-03-01)
