Read full description of the books:



I read this after reading an article that Gary Soto wrote in 2013 about the controversy that occurred when this book came out. I just read about a mom who wanted to move their daughter to the suburbs because they didn't have a yard and it'd be safer than living in the city of Chicago. really, who cares? The folks that were offended by this book need to realize that a book that is fiction can say anything it wants to. Why aren't these same people boycotting NCIS or other current criminal shows that show how "unsafe" certain places are in the US? it's a shame that this was the only book written about this girl. Of course, it was the typical American Girls formula, but probably decent enough that a little girl might learn to follow her dreams even if she has to move. (also, we get to see her worry about the changes, which is helpful for other kids going through similar situations.)
