Kids say (2):

Piper Reed is a crackerjack of a kid; her personality and funny take on life are what make this novel really pop. Her signature phrase "Get off the bus!" tells you a lot about this wonderful 9-year-old. The family camaraderie is endearing and kids will identify with Piper as she copes with a bossy older sister, an annoying little sister, troubles with friends, and being the new kid at school.

This is a great book for kids who have recently moved, are children of military parents, or will be starting a new school. It's also a good chapter book for younger readers.

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.
