When Ruthie moves to New York from Cuba the other kids think she’s not smart because she doesn’t know much English. Just when she starts to fit in, she gets into a bad accident. People say she’s lucky to be alive, but being stuck in a body cast for a year sure doesn’t feel lucky!

Such a Sweet Story

Review by Lillianswine

Just recently finished this book and I was blown away. Ruthie is such a sweet, wholesome character and her view of the world is such a new, fresh perspective. Would definitely recommend.
