She plans to write her name in big letters on the chalkboard, so everyone will know who she is.

She will build the tallest block tower, and she will run faster than everyone else provided they are only running downhill.

On the first day of school, an excited Amanda gets to the bus stop, where she finds a girl her age dressed in brilliantly-bright pink. Although Amanda tries to ignore her, the pink girl follows her onto the bus and sits down next to her. She introduces herself as Bitsy, but Amanda does not feel like being polite, so she does not answer. At school, Bitsy writes her name in big letters on the chalkboard, taking up most of the room and leaving Amanda only a very small area for her name.


No matter what Amanda tries to be best at, Bitsy gets in her way. Turns out she went looking for Amanda and got lost. Amanda discovers it does not hurt to be kind. This is a sweet story with adorable illustrations that combine panda traits with human traits. Teachers have many discussion points to use in class.

Instead, she is stuck babysitting her seven-year-old nephew, Rudy, in a mobile home while her year-old sister, Lynette, attends beauty school. Her great-grandfather is often described as somewhat different, a description that fits Iva as well. Fiercely proud and self-sufficient, she is content to not have friends, other than a few adults.

It is easy to understand why—Heaven is a pain in the neck who often lies, bullies, and tattletales yet manages to get away with her obnoxious behavior with no apparent consequences.

However, it becomes clear she needs help digging in her chosen spot and so begrudgingly invites Heaven along as a helper and silent partner. Set in a small Virginia town populated with adults with unusual names and characteristics, the often-humorous story reads quickly. More a story of friendship and loneliness than an adventure, it realistically sets up the relationship between the two girls. Readers looking for a story about some independent girls trying to figure out what friendship means will enjoy this light read.

Ages 7 to 9.
