First edition. 2021 Newbery Honor Book! In her second Newbery Honor book, author Kimberly Brubaker Bradley tells the story of two sisters, linked by love and trauma, who must find their own voices before they can find their way back to each other. Using humor and compassion, Bradley explores the stigma around child sexual abuse without ever being inappropriate or off-putting. An amazing achievement.
