It's amazing! I loved all the characters. I recommend this book to people that have moved countries. It's also really funny.

Review by appleofmyeye

This is an amazing book! I recommend this book for people young and old. I won’t spoil it but I just will tell you that it’s about a girl name Shai (pronounced SHY) who moves from Israel to America. She doesn’t like it at all plus she has to get a cast for her arm. 😢 but that’s not all that happens. There’s way more! I really hope that you choose this book because it is FULL of surprises with every page you turn. This is a must- read for EVERYONE. ❤️
