Reviews

BOOKLIST 11/15/08 Shira lives in a Miami hotel with her widowed father and her grandmother. When Shira s father begins todate his secretary and their relationship turns serious, Shira has trouble accepting how he is changing. And, for his part, her father can t communicate as well with an almost 16-year-old Shira as he could when shewas just a little girl. Shira turns to petty shoplifting and the arms of a mysterious Spanish boy to cope withher feelings. All the ingredients of a standard and credible YA problem novel are here, but Kwitney s script and Jones expressive black-and-white art make the story fresh and worth the quick reading time. Relationships are authentic, and both adults and teens evidence a true depth of character. The sadly soonto-be discontinued Minx line again upholds its standard of well-crafted and original work, and readers ofToken will want to look to Re-Gifters (2007) and Good as Lily (2007) for similarly well-told tales about the emotional hardships of growing up through accepting others as well as oneself.
