Recommended for: Grades 5 – 8

Mimi and her family move from California to rural Vermont where her father is a professor at the local college. Mimi feels she is an outsider in her new home. She is part Japanese and part African American. She has “boyish” interests – she wants to become an astronaut, enter the science competition and take shop. Mimi struggles to fit in, yet refuses to conform or back down from her interests. Mimi navigates her way through all her problems with grace, even though sometimes they anger her.
This novel in verse is simply and beautifully written.
