    • This light, humorous story, with playful artwork throughout, accurately captures the highs and lows of a child’s everyday life.
    • Piper has an authentic voice, complete with strong opinions: “I am a fussbudget about my strawberries. And the problem with strawberries is that you can almost never find the perfect one. They’re either too scrawny or they have dents in them or they have some weird bump growing on their skin.”
    • The characters’ relationships are endearing and ring true. Piper and her little brother, Leo, are antagonistic but loving, and the adults in Piper’s life find her charming and exasperating in turn.
    • Kids will relate to Piper’s realistic disappointments: she’s excited to have her bedroom painted her favorite color—but finds it unappealing once finished, and when a new schoolmate of Piper’s is allergic to the class’s pet rabbit, the bunny has to be rehoused.
    • Readers will enjoy the unusual setting—Piper lives off the Maine coast on a tiny island and rides a lobster boat to school.
