"My niece is loving this book, it is so special and beautifully written. Lin is a fantastic author and really sets the scene well in her book. I would recommend this book to any child who is on a middle or higher level of reading. The story is truly heartfelt and touching and highly recommended! A must buy LOVE IT!! "
"What a wonderful, charming, uplifting story!!! I so enjoyed this gem and can't wait to share it with others. I took my time and savored the experience! Sammy is marvelous and Ms. Thomas really nailed the 12-year-old girl experience! Adventure, mystery, friendship, life and culture--it's all here. The best part, though, is the inspiration and message of hope and "you can do it." Can't wait for the next one! Sammy needs to keep her wings exercised!"
"... Ms. Thomas provides insight for young readers into a culture that may be in many ways quite different than their own...By dealing with the anxiety of cultural change, it will help young readers understand that the new kid in their class that looks or sounds different has the same thoughts and feelings as they do. ... Finally I can't imagine a better book to give to a child who is facing their own big move. I don't know if it is available in other languages but I suspect if not now, it will be in the future. "
