Erin Entrada Kelly's heartfelt tale about friendship, authenticity, and belonging is a must-read for kids. Kelly does a beautiful job depicting life in a small, rural town where everyone knows everyone and everything about them. Told from multiple perspectives, kids will see how Orchid's arrival causes Those Kids from Fawn Creek to think about how they treat others and question why things are always the same in their small town. As the Fawn Creek seventh graders learn to stand up to bullying kids, readers will understand the power of courage, kindness, and integrity and see the importance of staying true to themselves.

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.
