A Publishers Weekly Best Book of 2020 Nominated for the Carnegie Medal Sonia and I have a lot in common. Our parents are divorced. Our dads are gay. We both love barbecue potato chips. But she is different from me in at least one way: you can't tell how she's feeling just by looking at her. At all. When Bea's dad and his wonderful partner, Jesse, decide to marry, it looks as if Bea's biggest wish is coming true: she's finally (finally!) going to have a sister. They're both ten. They're both in fifth grade. Though they've never met, Bea knows that she and Sonia will be perfect sisters. Just like sisters anywhere, Bea thinks. But as the wedding day approaches, Bea makes discoveries that lead her to a possibly disastrous choice. Making a new family brings questions, surprises, and joy in this brilliant modern classic by Newbery Medalist Rebecca Stead.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A wise view of divorce ... I would strongly recommend" * The Times *
"Excellent ... Stead's characters are recognisable kids of flesh and blood ... and her resolutions manage to be both unsaccharine and heartening" * Observer *
"[A] beautifully constructed, deceptively simple story" * Guardian *
"Funny, bold and poignant" * Daily Mail *
"Bea's interactions with her loving community convey particularly well-drawn dynamics that support themes of building resilience and savoring joy; together, these insightful moments layer into an affecting story of significant middle grade change (starred review)" * Publishers Weekly *
