Family members sometimes disagree on celebrations and traditions, and this touching tale extols compromise. Writer/illustrator Kat Fajado captures the kinetic energy of the story's Central American setting. And Sue is a likeable main character, gradually opening herself up to new experiences. Perfect for middle-grade graphic novel fans, Miss Quinces is a lively celebration of family life.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
