"Children will enjoy the wedding story, and many will recognize how a family custom can be a source of both embarrassment and pride." --"Booklist"

"How the strength of time-honored traditions and the warmth and love of a large extended family transform Nadia's feelings about her hands make an affecting . . . story." --"Kirkus Reviews"
