Calling all girls!
What an amazing book! As a student, I couldn't tear myself away. Naomi is constantly being teased about her middle name, Outlaw. She tries her best to ignore it while making lists and wondering about her absent parents. Her younger brother, Owen is an intelligent, physically disabled second grader who wants a bike more than anything. But the real adventure starts when Naomi's mom shows up at Gram's where Naomi and her brother reside. From then on the story takes you across the border where Naomi gains her own "voice" and identity. A must read, especially if you have ever wondered anything about yourself.
