Coneixement comú




Ressenya escrita per a Crítics Matiners de LibraryThing .
Having read a short biography of Jean Little it would seem that there is much of her personal story contained within this novel. Write what you know makes this a powerful story even 60 years later. The main character has cerebral palsy and has to adjust to returning home to attend her neighbourhood school. This was her first published novel and indeed deserves to be read by a new generation of children. I had a hard time getting into this one but after the first few chapters it's a great read.
