It is an essential American novel, perhaps the essential American novel for girls . . . Girls come to it on their own." -Jane Smiley, from the Introduction Praise for the Penguin Threads series: "In a time of downloads, E-Ink and Kindles, it is nice to see that Penguin still strives to produce beautifully designed physical books. . . . Miss Tamaki is one talented artist and her collaboration with Penguin is a match made in book heaven." --PhillyBurbs.com "When it comes to covers, Penguin is hard to beat.
