A soon-to-be classic by the Newbery Award-winning author of When You Reach Me.After her parents' divorce, Bea's life became different in many ways.

        Starred review from February 10, 2020
        When eight-year-old Bea’s father comes out as gay, her divorcing parents give her a notebook containing “The List of Things That Will Not Change,” an accounting that helps the girl navigate her shifting family landscape. Two years later, Bea is thrilled when her restaurateur dad and his adored boyfriend, Jesse, announce their engagement; the only child has always wanted a sister, and she can’t wait to welcome Jesse’s daughter, Sonia, into the family. But Sonia, who lives in California, has complicated feelings about the situation that surface when she arrives in New York City. It’s one of many interpersonal challenges that deeply sensitive Bea—an eczema sufferer who wears her heart on her sleeve—faces that year, contributing to growing feelings of guilt and worry. Newbery Medalist Stead’s knack for authentic tween voices (“I didn’t think I could live through that moment of everyone looking at me”) shines through in a first-person narration that explores Bea’s rich inner life as she learns, with help, to manage her anxiety. Bea’s interactions with her loving community convey particularly well-drawn dynamics that support themes of building resilience and savoring joy; together, these insightful moments layer into an affecting story of significant middle grade change. Ages 8–12. Agent: Faye Bender, the Book Group.

      • content: Narrator Rachel Jacobs's youthful voice is perfectly matched to Stead's story about a tween girl who is learning to deal with her emotions. Twelve-year-old Bea's life is about to change, and she is excited. Her father is getting remarried, and his fianc�'s daughter, Sonia, will soon be Bea's new sister. Jacobs communicates Bea's infectious enthusiasm over the upcoming wedding and Sonia's arrival, as well as her cagey resistance to thinking about her own insecurities and problems with anger management. Bea's recognition that people can sometimes be ugly and angry, along with her acceptance of her past mistakes, is conveyed with pitch-perfect sensitivity. Jacobs's respectful and nuanced performance is not to be missed. S.A.H. � AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine
