Product description

Review

“In this introspective story about a child’s search for a rare shell, Henkes again displays his ability to find profound meaning in ordinary events. . . . Readers will empathize with Alice’s frustrations and relish her moments of joy.” -- Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“With tender observations and sensory details, Henkes creates a memorable young individual whose arcadian growing up is authentic and pitch-perfect.” -- Booklist (starred review)

“Henkes knows that Alice, like many girls her age, carries plenty of things in her mind―and her heart―that she seldom speaks of. She mulls them over privately, and in Henkes’s hands, eloquently.” -- New York Times

“Alice balances between familiarity and novelty, coziness and independence, self-centeredness and altruism―the balance beam of turning ten. . . . A fully realized, respectful portrait of a childhood milestone.” -- The Horn Book

“Very few writers have such a keen understanding of the emotional lives of children; here Henkes is at the top of his game.” -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review) --This text refers to the paperback edition.
