"Dyamonde, a third grader, has "wild-crazy hair," is "skinnier than half a toothpick" and is more than equal to the challenge of entering the crowded field of confident grade school heroines."—New York Times

Dyamonde Daniel may be new in town, but that doesn't stop her from making a place for herself in a jiffy. With her can-do attitude and awesome brain power she takes the whole neighborhood by storm. The only thing puzzling her is the other new kid in her class. He's grouchy - but Dyamonde's determined to get to the bottom of his attitude and make a friend.

From AudioFile:

Third-grader Dyamonde Daniel is spunky, super smart, and "skinny as half a toothpick." Right away, it's obvious that author and narrator Nikki Grimes has created a special character. Since moving into the neighborhood, Dyamonde has been trying to find her place in her new school. When a new kid named Free joins her classroom, Dyamonde wants to help him feel welcome but gets only rudeness in return. Changing the timbre of her voice to differentiate the two children, Grimes allows listeners to experience their engaging personalities. Grimes dramatizes Dyamonde's perseverance and observant nature, making it fully believable when Free finally warms up to her. E.A.B. AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine
