📖Brief review- Wanda Petronski , a Polish girl in Connecticut is repeatedly asked the same above question by her classmate, Peggy. She wears the same faded blue dress to school everyday, yet she says the same above answer. Nobody believes her & she is constantly teased by the other girls. Maddie, Peggy's best friend plays along but, wishes to speak up in Wanda's defense.

📖 My Rating- 5🌟/5
. Highly recommended for children & young adults.
