Debut velist Elisabeth Dahl captures the ups and downs of a transitional age somewhere between child and teenager and the dramas (little and big) that mean so much. Genie is elected to write the class blog, where she expresses the wishes, dreams, and hopes of her class, and also deals with the stresses Blair brings to her world. The book is also decorated with occasional black and white illustrations by Genie, adding to its friendly, welcoming feel.
Elisabeth Dahl, like Genie, was born in Baltimore. This is her first novel.
