This inspiring story of accepting what is and quietly making a difference is told through a series of letters written by a young girl who is sent to New York City to stay with her uncle as a result of the Great Depression. The generous illustrations and cleverly written letters convey the story effectively enough to keep me choked up from cover to cover.
