Reviews

The Horn Book Guide

“Ready or not, fourth-grader Mallory is growing up, but she’s feeling not so ready these days. Although her friends think she should be thrilled when a fifth-grade boy expresses interest in her, Mallory’s not sure she’s ready for boys. As usual, her desire to please everyone makes nobody happy. Written as a diary, Mallory’s story is a familiar but relevant tale about varying rates of maturity.”
