The reissue of this fantastic title in hardcover assures that library will keep a durable version on their shelves. Sally has lived at a rehabilitation school for most of her life and has dreamed of actually living at home with her family rather than just visiting them; but her dreams are nothing like the reality she faces when she does go home permanently, only to face the typical challenges of a new school and friends and the special problems of being handicapped in the world. -- Midwest Book Review
