In her debut novel, Christina Uss captures that middle grade voice with sensitivity and wit of a seasoned writer. Readers will come to love Bicycle, Sr. Wanda, and all the friends Bicycle meets on her trip from Washington, DC to San Francisco. No detail is missed as she paints a picture of the United States with the artistry of Monet, Manet, and Thomas Cole. Fans of Jack Gantos, Deadend in Norvelt, Erin Kelly, Hello Universe, and Rebecca Stead, When You Reach Me, will love this friendship, adventure, and coming of age story.
If I were Kirkus, I’d be giving this a starred review!
